THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state government on Wednesday began the renovation of a major road connecting three panchayats in the Nedumangad constituency which would help to usher in development in the region.

PWD Minister V K Ebrahim Kunju inaugurated the renovation of the Parackal-Vellanickal-Vengod Road which links the grama panchayats of Manickal, Mudackal and Pothencode. The road is to be renovated at a cost of Rs 4.84 crore with the help of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD).
