The Veluthampi Dalava Smaraka Kendram celebrated the 203rd anniversary of ‘Kundara Vilambaram,' through which Veluthampi Dalava exhorted the public to fight colonialism, by offering floral tributes to the statue of the Dalava in front of the Secretariat on Sunday.

Historian T.P. Sankarankutty Nair said the State government must set up a memorial for Veluthampi Dalava in the city. “During the 200 birth anniversary celebrations of the Dalava the then Chief Minister R. Shankar had announced that a befitting memorial would be constructed for him in the city. Oommen Chandy should now fulfil Shankar's promise,” Mr. Nair said.
