Chamber plea to Sonia

KOZHIKODE: The city-based Calicut Chamber of Commerce and Industry has appealed to All-India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi to induct at least one newly elected MP, preferably from the Congress, from north Kerala in the Union Cabinet for the development of the Malabar region. The region, comprising six districts, had been totally neglected by various governments for the past five decades, M. Sreeram, chamber president, and A.M. Shareef, secretary, said in a fax message to Ms. Gandhi. — Staff Reporter
