Youth Requested Collector To Help In Closing Abandoned Borewell !! Here’s His Response !!


Not many days ago, a 2 year old kid named as “Surjith” died, after falling into an abandoned borewell while playing. After 80 hours of struggle from the government, the kid could not be saved due to the non cooperation of the circumstance around the borewell.

The incident which happened at Nadukattupatti, near Manapparai, in Tamil Nadu on Friday, failed on Tuesday with rescue workers managing to retrieve only his “highly decomposed and dismembered” body. The boy was formally declared dead at 2.30 a.m. of Wednesday and his body was retrieved by teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the State Disaster Response Force a couple of hours later.

During the rescue operation, people of Tamilnadu had worried a lot and glued with the news channels. Many of them couldn’t even celebrated the Diwali festival, considering the situation of Surjith. They feel that the death of Surjith has created an awareness to the entire state about the consequences of unprotected borewells.

Now a youth has called the collector of Karur district Anbazhagan to close an abandoned borewell near his place only to get humiliation from the officer. The phone call conversation between the two has been released and is creating outrage in social media.

In the audio we can hear the youth who is from Sembiya Natham village, explaining the situation to Anbazhagan, the collector of Karur district. On hearing his issue, Collector Anbazhagan asks him whether he feels dishonorable to complain the problem to BDO (Block Development Officer).

To his question, the youth says that he informed it to the BDO but no appropriate action has been taken. Collector who interrupts him while speaking asks whether he contacted him in person or not. When the youth says that he didn’t come to office on a particular day, Anbazhagan asks the complainer to contact BDO in person.

“Do you think a collector is a server in Saravana Bhavan hotel ??” asks the collector who also can be heard yelling “Rascal” at the youth. Watch the audio conversation below :
