THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Attingal MP A Sampath has demanded that Nedumangad be developed into a satellite town of Thiruvananthapuram city. The demand was raised during a meeting of MPs convened by the State Government here on Wednesday.

“According to estimates, the population of Nedumangad municipality is poised to touch 70,000 by 2030 from 60,000 at present,” Sampath said.

The CPM MP demanded that Nedumangad town and adjoining gram panchayats should be included in all development plans relating to the the capital city. “Nedumangad can be developed into a satellite town which is self-sufficient in terms of clean drinking water, electricity, education, health traffic and waste management.” Sampath said.

The social cost for the conservation of agricultural land and water bodies should be borne by the government, the MP demanded. The Attingal MP also asked the State Government to develop the Nedumangad-Thiruvananthapuram state highway as a four-lane highway.

“Check dams should be built over Killi river in Nedumangad so that the water can be effectively utilised. The funds for this purpose should be earmarked in the state budget,” he said.
