Old traffic system in Chala to be restored

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM Oct. 22. The old traffic system in the Chala market would be restored with effect from November 1. This was decided at a meeting of people's representatives and trade associations convened by the District Collector, K.R. Muraleedharan, here today.

B. Vijayakumar, MLA, who took part in the meeting, charged that the old arrangement had been changed by the police without consulting anyone. The merchants' representatives said the sale of provisions, vegetables, flowers, etc., had dropped by about 40 per cent due to the modification.

The councillors, Chala Mohanan and Ambika Krishnan, and the Traffic Assistant Commissioner, A. J. Thomas Kutty, were among those who attended the meeting.
