With an aim to reduce the pollution in the city, an organisation named Paristhithi Malineekarana Nirmarjana Samithi (PMNS) has been formed on Thursday. PMNS state president K J Tomy said that the official inauguration of the organisation will be held on November 15. Various environmentalists across the state will participate in the function.

According to  the members of the association, the state’s local bodies and the district administration have failed to solve problems related to pollution. The organisation plans to conduct a study on the various environmental issues and an expert team will identify the ecologically and environmentally sensitive zones in the city, they said.

After proper studies, the organisation will bring the issues to the attention of the authorities. If action is not taken by the authorities, the organisation will try to solve it by approaching the court.  The Samithi will also provide awareness classes to the people on various aspects of waste management, said PMNS general secretary P B Ummar.
