THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In the wake of deepening garbage crisis in the capital, the LDF has kicked off its month-long agitations demanding a solution from the State Government. The Mayor and her team took out another march to the CM’s residence in Jagathy and staged a dharna which was inaugurated by CPI (M) district secretary Kadakampally Surendran.

  He said the govt was showing a double standard regarding the solid waste management issues in the state. While it used iron fists to curb public outrage over waste management in Kannur, Chelora, it has been siding with the panchayat officials at Vilappilsala quoting the public outrage there as reason.

The govt that is giving all support to close the plant and to bring solid waste management to a halt, should also suggest alternative methods, he said.  

Mayor K Chandrika, Standing Committee Chairpersons and LDF councillors were given support by people from the Muttada ward (Mayor’s ward) who turned up for the march. Corporation officials said that on Sunday, Deputy Mayor G Happykumar would lead the march to CM’s residence which will be taken up by other Chairpersons in the coming days, till a solution is found, they said.

The Mayor had taken out a march a couple of days ago to the CM’s residence and a ‘sangamam’ of LDF leaders was also held at Gandhi Park the other day.
