A joint action committee will be formed to resolve the issue of digging up of an unauthorised well at the Rubber Park at Chalakkal near here.
The decision was taken at a meeting convened by the District Collector and other officials the other day here.This comes in the wake of the last month’s incident in which the police had to resort to lathi charge to disperse protesters, injuring women and children.Samara Samithi members will also be part of the action committee.
The Collector proposed two representatives of the Rubber Park, tahsildar, two local panchayat members and a PWD engineer to be members of the joint committee.The committee will assess damages to the houses around the park.
It will also evaluate the working method of the quarry functioning inside the park compound and evaluate its feasibility.
Considering the request of the Samara Samithi members, the Collector urged park officials to reduce the size of the pond, which had been the subject of the upheaval, and convert it into a well.
While the Collector had decided to give a ‘go-ahead’ signal for the construction of the warehouse inside the compound, he said, he would recommend the park officials to withdraw the cases registered by the police against the Samara Samithi members during the upheaval.
