Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday said that finding exclusive space for establishing waste management plants is not practical in a rapidly urbanising state like Kerala. “Barring residential areas is not an option,” he pointed out.

He expressed concern over rising protest in the establishment of waste management plants by locals.

“If there are such issues, it should be reconciled,” he further said.

The CM also urged everyone to unite against eradicating waste issues as it has been affecting the quality of water.

His statement in Kerala Assembly comes at a time when protests against sewage treatment plants at various places including Kozhikode’s Avikkal Thodu and Kothi are in limelight.
