COVID-19 cannot beat farming enthusiasts in police force
Mullakkanam (Idukki): The Janamaithri police in Rajakkadu have decided to follow the Chief Minister's direction to be engaged in farming during the lockdown period. Even when they are active in COVID-19 resistance duty, the officers spend a little time for vegetable cultivation also.
The police officers started vegetable farming in a 50-cent unused land near the police station and in a rain guard. Different varieties of vegetables including broccoli, long beans, spinach, tomato and okra are growing here. Police officers take turns to maintain the garden every day.
The vegetables harvested from the garden are used in the police mess for making food. They have also decided to give rest of the vegetables to the inmates of Karuna Bhavan in Kallimali.
