: The High Range Protection Council has called off the hartal in Idukki district on Monday.

Talking to the media after the meeting, Idukki MP Joyce George and general convener of the council Sebastian Kochupurakkal said the agitation was announced in the wake of apprehension fuelled by the maps submitted by the Forest Department in which large tracts of human settlements, farmlands and plantations were shown as forest.

“We welcome the decision to fine-tune the cadastral maps prepared by the Oommen V. Oommen committee and submit the report to the Centre by the month end,” Mr.George said.
