Tambaram railway ground turns open bar

Tambaram railway ground has been the source of joy for children and youngsters. The huge sprawling open space is a delight for cricket and football lovers, Walkers and those who want to workout throng here in large numbers. Unfortunately in the recent past, tipplers use it as a boozing point. The facility has turned an open bar. This has put fitness freaks coming here and children playing here in a spot of bother.

A middle-aged man who come for walk here daily, says, 'The boozers create ruckus. We are troubles. Previously there used to be police patrol. Now with no khaki men in the vicinity, tipplers have free run here'. We all want police patrolling in the area and throw tipplers out from the place. The facility should be preserved and maintained well by authorities, he adds.
