On Sunday, 2nd October 2022, the gram sabhas present in and around Parandur passed resolutions rejecting the proposal to construct a second airport in Chennai. It was the second time that the gram sabhas in and around Parandur have passed resolutions against the project. This was according to Mr. Ilango, a farmer belonging to Ekanapuram near Parandur. It is well know that Parandur was selected by the government as the site for constructing second airport in Chennai

He added that the gramsabhas including Ekanapuram, Gunagarambakkam and Parandut have passed resolutions. The places in and around Parandur would be severely affected if the second airport project comes into effect. He explained that the people have been protesting continuously against this important proposal of the government because it would affect the livelihoods of many there.

On Sunday, various officers from the TN government made their presence felt at Parandur to convince the residents and dissuade them from passing the resolution.  It was later brought out by a farmer from Nagapattu that in the last 10 years many have constructed their houses with a lot of difficulties. The entire savings were used to build the houses here.

The farmer then spoke about how the TN govt might provide compensation but they do not have energy now to build a new house again. Point is that the lands identified for the second airport were wetlands and the impact it would have on the environment would affect many badly.  A farmer who does farming at Nelvoi mentioned that the residents vehemently oppose the project.
