Probe KVVES fund collection: KVVS

Staff Reporter

Says funds be given to official committee


Demands that shops be reconstructed by by official panel

Congratulates government for relaxing rules


Kozhikode: The district committee of the Kerala Vyapari Vyavasayi Samithi (KVVS) has demanded that the government order a vigilance inquiry into the details of collection of funds by the Kerala Vyapari Vyavasayi Ekopana Samithi (KVVES) in the name of “helping those traders who had lost shops in the fire at SM Street in Kozhikode.”

Talking to reporters here on Thursday, C.K. Vijayan, district secretary, and A.T. Abdullakkoya, secretary of the KVVS, said the fund collected by the KVVES should be handed over to the official committee formed with Mayor M. Bhaskaran as chairman and District Collector A. Jayathilak as convener.

This fund should not meet with the same fate as that of Gujarat fund, Kargil and tsunami funds, it said.

The KVVS demanded that the reconstruction of the shops should be undertaken by this official committee with the full participation of shop owners and tenants. This should not be undertaken by an individual or any single organisation, they said.

They congratulated the State government for allowing special concessions in the building rules for the purpose of reconstruction of shops that were gutted. The government also declared Rs.1 crore for the rehabilitation of those traders who had lost shops in the fire. They also decried the efforts of T. Nasirudheen, State president of KVVES, to take the credit of the government decisions. They said that Mr. Nasirudheen who laid the foundation stone for the shopping complex for housing the shops for those traders who had lost shops in the fire, could not take the construction activities forward.

However, the traders contacted KVVS and a ‘Relief Redressal Samithi’ was formed by involving the shop owners and tenants.
