MALAPPURAM: The National Service Scheme unit of Government College, Malappuram, launched a nature club named Kattupacha on Wednesday. C.R. Neelakantan, environmental activist, inaugurated the club.

He cautioned the students against falling prey to the practice of gauging the country’s resources, particularly human resources, by using the yardsticks of western imperialism.

Mr. Neelakantan said a new development paradigm was the need of the hour for a State like Kerala.

College principal P.K. Velayudhan presided over the function.

K. Zainul Abid, staff coordinator, welcomed the gathering.

P.M. Niyas Ali, student convener of Kattupacha, proposed a vote of thanks.
