Thiruvananthapuram: veteran Communist leader and Administrative Reforms Commission Chairperson V S Achuthanandan said that even small kids are aware that the reason for natural disasters are filling up of paddy fields, uncontrolled quarrying, excavation and construction of bunds on hilly regions. Only the representatives of people are unaware of the reasons and its importance, he said.
Experts have clearly revealed the reasons for the disasters we are facing. Reports submitted by experts like Madhav Gadgil are there for our reference, V S noted on Facebook.
People are helpless when the elected government gives permission for surpassing Kerala Conservation of Paddy Land and Wetland Act, for limitless quarrying and for illegal constructions. It is high time Gadgil report is implemented. If we do not adopt measures to conserve the Western Ghats that maintains Kerala as Kerala, only we would be responsible for the future disasters, he added.
