Sajid Koroth, an expatriate from Atholi grama panchayat, on Thursday exchanged a consent letter with the local grama panchayat authorities for converting his 1.11 acres into a public playground to encourage sports and games in the village. He decided to support the cause following requests from a group of sports lovers and the local school alumni association. Grama panchayat president Sheeba Ramachandran said a mini stadium would be constructed at the spot to begin with the development activities. It can be completed in six months, she said.
