Minister for Urban Affairs Manjalamkuzhi Ali has said that a plant to produce electricity from plastic waste will be established in Kollam. A total of six such plants will be established in different parts of the State.

Mr. Ali was addressing a gathering after inaugurating a modern fish market inside the Polayathodu public market complex here on Friday. He said that such plants would to some extent be a solution for garbage treatment and disposal. There was no fund paucity for development projects in the State. Various development projects worth Rs.2,500 were being carried out in the city Corporation and municipal areas of the State, the Minister said.

He called for a united approach above political consideration for the time-bound completion of these projects.
