THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Maranalloor town in the district has deployed 14 CCTV cameras to tackle the indiscriminate dumping of garbage in the town limits and to ensure smooth traffic flow.

The initiative was inaugurated on Tuesday, along with work on a new electric crematorium. ‘’The decision to install the cameras was taken in view of the danger to the thousands of children who pass through the town every day and to check the illegal dumping of waste from market and other places in the town limits,’’ the district administration said in a statement. Schools, co-operative organisations, banks and traders in Maranalloor came together to form a Town Development Association for installing the 14 cameras. The project cost Rs 4.50 lakh. Opposition Leader V S Achuthanandan inaugurated the work on the new crematorium and the ‘development fest’ at Maranalloor on Tuesday. Regional administrations should design developmental activities by taking into account the requirements of the people and the potential of the region in question. Speaker N Sakthan said developmental activities for the public should have priority over political considerations.

The crematorium is being constructed at a cost of Rs 75 lakh - which includes a state government share of Rs 50 lakh and Maranalloor panchayat share of Rs 25 lakh. A Sampath MP inaugurated the anniversary celebrations of the Maranalloor CDS. Autorickshaws were distributed to 21 persons and computers to students from ST families on the occasion. Maranalloor panchayat president N Bhasurangan and block panchayat president M Manikantan were present on the occasion.
