The activists also raised concern over inordinate delay in disposing of the advocate’s bail petitions.
Trichy: At a time when the city is boasting of an open defecation free (ODF) tag and gearing up for Swachh Survekshan 2018, a study conducted by an environmental NGO here has shown that open defecation is the norm in 137 locations spread across 38 wards in the city, that is over 50 per cent of the wards. In a severe blow to the Trichy Corporation which has often been portrayed as the cleanest city in the state after coming in the top 10 for two consecutive years till 2016, the study found that people in about 22 wards had no proper access to public toilets.
