Erode (TN), Jan 20 (PTI) Days after a fringe group from

Karnataka damaged sign and name boards of Tamil Nadu, a

committee has been formed by the district administration here

to conduct a survey of such markings in areas bordering the

neighbouring state and relocate them, if needed, to avert

recurrence of such incidents.

District Collector C Kathiravan on Wednesday said the

panel members would visit all border points with Karnataka in

Thalavadi and Burgur areas in this western district and would

take steps to relocate any sign or name board found placed

within the territorial limits of the neighbouring state.

The committee, comprising officials of the Revenue and

Highways department, would take steps to remove such boards

and re-install them within Tamil Nadu''s limits, some meters

away from the exact state border, he told reporters here.

It was set up on Tuesday to prevent such incidents, he

said, referring to miscreants damaging the signboards of the

Highways Department and the Erode District Panchayat council

in Tamil and English in Binapuram area in Thalavadi taluk on

Sunday.

The vandalisation came close on the heels of a similar

incident on Januaruy 10 when a group led by Kannada Chaluvali

Vatal Paksha leader Vattal Nagaraj entered Ramapura locality,

also in Thalavadi taluk, and allegedly dismantled and threw

away name boards of district panchayat and highways

department.

Such boards are kept in border areas to indicate the

start of Tamil Nadu limits and the division or sub-division of

the state highways the locality falls and also to either

''welcome'' or ''thank'' visiting people.

The back-to-back incidents, which came in the backdrop of

a row between Maharashtra and Karnataka over some border areas

where Marathi speaking people live, had sparked off outrage

among people in Tamil Nadu with the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal

Katchi giving a call for a protest.

The situation in the areas was now calm but police

personnel continued to be posted there, police said on

Wednesday.

The group from Karnataka that vandalised name boards on

Sunday claimed that Thalavadi belonged to their state, echoing

the stand of Nagaraj. PTI CORR NVG
