KOLLAM: Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNDP) Yogam director board met here the other day and passed resolutions on various issues. The main among them was naming the Central University of Kerala in Kasaragod after Sree Narayana Guru.

The resolution stated that Guru taught the world about getting enlightened by gaining knowledge and in honour of that great saint, the university should be named Sree Narayana Guru Central University. A copy of the resolution has been sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and HRD Minister Smriti Irani.

In another resolution, the Yogam sought govt intervention in regulating the prices of consumer products which were increased when the price of petroleum products go up. The resolution noted that the price of petrol and diesel had decreased significantly recently. Yet the prices of consumer products were not reduced. Only the truck owners and traders benefited from this price reduction.
