As many as 500 people, majority of them women, from the small village of Kidangannur near Aranmula took out a march protesting against the proposed private airport project in Aranmula on Saturday.

Holding placards and raising slogans against the private company that has proposed to construct a green field airport in Aranmula, the protesters staged the march to the office of the company in village headquarters of Aranmula in the forenoon.

The local people were opposing the government decision notifying 500 acres of land spread across the three villages of Aranmula, Mallappuzhassery and Kidanganuur as industrial area in February.

V.N.Unni, Bharatiya Janata Party district president; K.P.Soman, Hindu Aikya Vedi leader and Uthaman Nair, action council member, were among those who addressed the march.
