The UDF has decided to take over and lead a protest carried out by local people against the industrial promotion zone at Olavanna in Kozhikode.
Visiting the site of protest on Thursday, opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala said that the UDF will carry on with legal procedures against the announcement of the proposed industrial promotion zone.
Natives of Olavanna, including house wives, described their worries regarding the industrial zone to the opposition leader. They also alleged that self governing bodies including Panchayat are yet to get any notification regarding the proposed industrial zone.
Ramesh Chennithala has assured the protesters that he will make arrangements for a meeting between them and the government regarding the issue.
Following the announcement of the industrial promotion zone, natives are not allowed for constructions other than industries and the people are staging protest against that.
