Thiruvananthapuram: CPM state secretary MV Govindan said that the government, Kochi Corporation and the public are responsible for the Brahmapuram fire mishap. He also said that the Brahmapuram waste treatment plant could be dealt like the Kollam model of waste management.
The garbage heap in Brahmapuram was not dumped mainly during the period of the present government. It accumulated in the course of several years, said MV Govindan.
He shrugged off the accusations raised against the department of health and added that the department has made timely intervention for the residents of Brahmapuram and the vicinity.
MV Govindan also slammed the Centre for attempting to grasp the cooperative sector in the state. Amit Shah has been targeting Kerala through all these reforms as the state constitutes the considerable part of the cooperatives in the country, he said.
CPM state secretary made his remarks regarding the ongoing protests of Kerala Catholic Bishop’s Council and Thrissur Archdiocese against the play ‘Kakkukali’. The right to perform plays and criticise a system cannot be snatched from anyone, said MV Govindan.
