Violating Court order, Kerala Govt. allots 15 hectares of eco fragile land for Airport

published on January 31, 2015

It has been revealed that Kerala Government allotted 15 hectares  hectares of land in Aranmula to KGS Group for airport, violating High Court order. The land including streams, wetland and paddy fields has been allotted to the KGS group.

Supreme Court had upheld the National Green Tribunal verdict that cancelled environmental clearance given to the Aranmula Airport issued by the Ministry of Environment and Forests under UPA. SC directed state government to ensure that KGS group is not taking up further activities in connection with airport development. Instead of implementing court directive , Kerala government is mocking judiciary by allotting this land to airport which threatens the existence of Aranmula heritage village and famous Aranmula Temple.

Aranmula Heritage Village Action Council under Kummanam Rajasekharan will approach court against this contempt of court by Kerala Govt.
