Irinjalakuda: With an aim to improve security of women, the Irinjalakuda District Panchayat has decided to establish a ‘She Lodge’ in the town.

For new District Panchayat President Mary Thomas, it is a fulfilment of her first election promise.

The lodge will come up on the one-acre land near the bus stand. The ground floor of the proposed three-storey building will be reserved for the shopping complex for Kudumbashree workers.

Space will be allocated to the Fashion Technology Institute which is currently functioning in the area.

The lodge will function on the first and second floors of the building.
