March to the District Collector’s office.

PALAKKAD: The Vanam-Paristhithi Samrakshana Ekopana Samithy will organise a march to the District Collector’s office and hold a dharna there on May 30. The eco group is protesting against the reported move of the State government to hand over the Thuthampara Estate in Nelliampathy, to the Plantation Corporation. The estate was taken over by the government after the expiry of the lease period.

The samithy had also urged the government to include the Rosery and Beatrice estates, taken over earlier, to be included in the proposed Parambikulam Tiger Reserve.
