Pathanamthitta, Kerala, Aug 26 (UNI) National Land Reforms Council Member P V Rajagopal today called for national-level intervention to find an amicable settlement to the 13-month-old land struggle at Chengara in this district.

Mr Rajagopal said detailed discussions were held with Mr Laha Gopalan, President of Sadhu Jana Vimochana Samyuktha Vedi which was spearheading the struggle.

A team of delegates from the solidarity council would reach Delhi by the first week of September to hold discussions with the authorities concerned, he added.

He also said human rights violations allegedly committed by certain trade unions through coercive action should be condemned, Mr Rajagopal called upon the State Government to take steps to provide food, medicine and legal aid to the agitators.
