The District Development Council (DDC) convened here on Saturday decided to coordinate the services of various departments to effectively make preparations for the Sabarimala pilgrim season.

Squad works should be made active. Medical aid needed for the devotees should be provided at all the centres,” she said.

The meeting  also decided to conduct frequent inspections at shops to ensure quality along with fair price for food and other products. Adequate facilities will be provided at the railway stations and private and KSRTC bus stands for devotees from various states.
