Local body elections to various posts in Vellore, Ranipet and Tirupattur districts are likely to be held only after two months, according to the plan for village panchayat reorganisation mooted by Vellore Collector A Shanmuga Sundaram on Saturday.
Vellore DRO J Parthiban — in the presence of Ranipet Collector S Divyadarshini and Tirupattur collector MP Sivan Arul — read out the list of villages which were proposed to be added to the nearest panchayat union. A political party representative felt the exercise could lead to trouble if villages are attached to different districts.
As of now, 20 village panchayats under Sholingur panchayat union in Ranipet district are proposed to be attached to Katpadi PU, and 12 village panchayats in Kaveripakkam in Ranipet district to Sholingur PU.
Similarly, 14 villages in Kaveripakkam PU were to be attached to Arakkonam PU, while four villages would be shifted to Kaveripakkam PU from Nemili PU.
In Tirupattur district, three villages now with Alangayam PU will be attached to Tirupattur PU while another two villages would go to Jolorpet PU, Parthiban said.
Similarly, three villages in Tirupattur PU would be shifted to Alangayam PU.
Large-scale changes were expected in truncated Vellore district where 26 villages now with Perenambut PU would move to Madanur PU in Tirupattur district. While five villages in Madanur panchayat union would be attached to Gudiyattam PU in Vellore district, one village in Pernambut PU would be attached to Gudiyattam PU in Vellore district. Similarly, 13 village panchayats in Madanur PU in Tirupattur district may be added to Anaicut PU in Vellore district.
