Letter to the Prime Minister

Dear Shri. Narendra Modiji,

As you are aware, Kasaragod, the northern most district of Kerala has been severely affected by aerial spraying of Endosulfan, now a notified persistent organic pollutant and highly hazardous pesticide. Endosulfan was sprayed aerially in this region for over 2 decades (1978 to 2001) by the Plantation Corporation of Kerala in full cognizance of CPCRI (Central Plantation Crops Research Institute) and other central and state government agencies and authorities. Ever since Endosulfan was found to be a serious threat, the issue of establishing an effective rehabilitation system for victims was demanded from different corners.

What is intended is to improve the signalling system, introduce new rolling stock and convert all Railway (more…)

Letter to the Prime Minister

Dear Narendra Modiji,

I would like to bring to your attention that the Kerala Legislative Assembly had convened an extra ordinary one day session on 22.11.2016 to discuss the situation faced by the state following demonetisation of high denomination currency notes with special reference to the crisis faced by the co-operative sector in the state. The Assembly had authorised an all party delegation to meet you in person, convey our concerns and have a productive discussion in this regard to explore possibilities of finding solutions to the impasse.

However, the turning down of our request to meet you in person has come as a real shock for all of us here. I am writing this letter to convey our concern on the issue and the anguish of about nineteen million co-operators and all the legislators of the state. (more…)
