Written by: Staff

Palakkad July 3 (UNI) Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan today said that his government would look into complaints about the unrestricted exploitation of groundwater by the Cola companies and environmental pollution caused by them in palachimada in the district.

Participating in a Meet-the-Press programme of the Press Club, he said appropriate action would be taken against the erring companies.

Mr Achuthanandan said the LDF government in the state was committed in improving the lot of the farmers. Some relief measures for them had already been taken including the writing off loans up to Rs one lakh. The scheme of providing support price for paddy would be effectively implemented, he added.

He said the government would take necessary steps for the revival of traditional industries.

The Chief Minister alleged that managements of the self-financing professional colleges were out to commercialise education denying opportunity for higher education to the economically weaker sections.

Earlier, Mr Achuthanandan distributed scholarships introduced by the Malayala Manorama for the children of its subscribers.
