Chief Minister Oommen Chandy has said that the government will give priority to forming Pattambi taluk in the district.

He was inaugurating a seminar on ‘Development of Pattambi,’ jointly organised by ‘Kerala Kaumudi’ and Pattambi MLA C.P. Mohammed at Pattambi Government Sanskrit College here on Friday.

Reason for delay

The Chief Minister said that “the delay was due to procedures involved in forming a new taluk. When the government decides to form new taluks Pattambi will be given top priority.”

The seminar was addressed by V.T. Balram and Shafi Parambil, MLAs; and district panchayat vice president Subida Isahaq among others.
