Frequent accidents

The Trichy-Chennai trunk road is about 50 km in Perambalur district. Accidents are common on this road due to speeding vehicles. Since there is no public hospital in the highway area with full facilities to rescue accident victims and provide immediate emergency treatment, many people die without being treated in time. To avoid this, if there was an emergency and accident treatment center on the national road under Perambalur district, the lives of many accident victims could have been saved. .

Space provided free of charge

Already in 1989, land was purchased by villagers along the Trichy-Chennai national road for the establishment of a government primary health center in Padalur, Aladhur Taluk, Perambalur district and was given free of charge. But the government’s primary health center was not located there, it was located on the road to Oottathur.

In this situation, the Karai Village Government Primary Health Center Alathur Taluk was upgraded to Alathur Taluk Government Hospital. Also, due to the frequent accidents on the national road, the government took action to move the taluk government hospital from Karai to a site in Padalur, which was donated by the villagers free of charge.

Subsequently, a soil analysis was carried out on the land donated free of charge by the villagers for the establishment of a government hospital in Padalur. But it is said that the funds allocated for the construction of the hospital were suddenly withheld and some people tried to take over the premises.
