Staff Reporter

Thrissur: The government should provide non-financial support for small tourism projects, Opposition leader Oommen Chandy has said. He was speaking after inaugurating ‘Puzhakkal River Tourism Village’ project organised by Adatt Panchayat on Tuesday.

The Rs.1 crore-project would be finished with the help of sponsorship, the organisers said. In the first phase, the project will have boating facility at Ambakkad river, a kudumbasree centre and cultural events. A rope car facility over the river, an eco-friendly restaurant and a children’s park will be added at the second phase. With such a novel project, the Adatt panchayat has become a model for other local bodies, Mr. Chandy said.
