Priority to drinking water supply schemes: Vaikom MLA

‘Efforts being made to formulate a master plan for the development of the constituency.'


KOTTAYAM: High priority will be given to implement drinking water supply schemes in Vaikom constituency in the next five years, according to K. Ajith, MLA.

He was participating at a meet-the-press programme here on Monday.

Mr. Ajith said that a permanent solution to address the drinking water supply problems in Vaikom was yet to be found. “Various schemes have been proposed to solve the issues. A project to supply water to the Thalayazham grama panchayat will be commissioned soon. Moreover, the Kariyar Spillway will be commissioned on July 1,” he said.

The Kariyar Spillway project involves the setting up of a drinking water distribution system using water from the Vembanad lake.

Mr. Ajith also said that efforts were being made to formulate a master plan for the development of the constituency.

The MLA said that efforts would be made to develop Vaikom as a tourism destination.

“The pilgrim centres in the constituency will be developed with proper facilities. As part of the project, sanitation would also be deemed prime importance,” he said.

He expressed optimism that the change of guard in the State would not hinder development activities in the constituency.

“Politics would not come in the way of progress. Moreover, considering the representation of the district in the State cabinet, developmental works would not suffer. Vaikom has also received due importance in the 100-day programmes of the government,” he said.
