‘State a model in progressive decentralisation of power'

Local self-governments should chalk out creative projects for scientific disposal of waste generated in their jurisdiction, Devaswom Minister Kadannappally Ramachandran has said.

The Minister was inaugurating ‘Gramotsavom-2010' organised by the Konni grama panchayat at Konni on Wednesday.

Mr. Ramachandran said that Kerala with its progressive decentralisation of power stood a role model to the rest of the country in terms of rural development. The Minister released a souvenir and distributed the keys of houses built under the EMS Housing Scheme to its beneficiaries on the occasion.

Adoor Prakash, MLA, presided the function.

Omalloor Sankaran, district panchayat standing committee chairman, Robin Peter, block panchayat president, Pushpalatha Prasad, grama panchayat president, M.P. Maniyamma, Elizabeth Abu and Seema Ramakrishnan, all district panchayat members, and A. Padmakumar, former MLA, also spoke.
