Vizhinjam protest: CM’s discussion with protesters fails; Adani Group approaches court for security

Vizhinjam protest, CM Pinarayi Vijayan

Thiruvananthapuram: The meeting summoned by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan with the representatives of the Latin Archdiocese to settle the ongoing protests against the Vizhinjam port failed.

The Archdiocese demanded the CM to cease the construction activities and conduct an environmental impact assessment of the project. However, the CM told them that the construction cannot be halted.

Earlier, two ministerial-level discussions with the protestors had failed to reach a consensus though the government had agreed to most of the demands.

Meanwhile, Adani Group approached the High Court seeking protection for the port. The court will consider the plea submitted by the Adani Group and the contract company on Friday.

Adani Group informed the court that the protest is obstructing the construction work and the lives of the employees are under threat.
