Kalpetta: Three children belonging to a tribal family in Wayanad would hold a satyagraha in front of the house of actor Manju Warrier in Thrissur from February 13 onwards alleging the actress had gone back on her promise of building houses for poor Adivasi families. Indira Vellan, Mini Kumaran and Patta Vellan would protest by building a tiny hut in front of Manju’s house.
The Manju Warrier Foundation has informed that they would construct houses with basic facilities for 57 families belonging to the Panniya community at Parakunni of the Panamaram grama panchayat at a cost of Rs 1.88 crore. A letter was also sent to the collector, minister of the concerned department, Panamaram grama panchayat on January 20, 2017. Approval was also given for construction activities by the Scheduled Caste Department. But after such a long time, no action has been initiated, they said.
