Call to preserve green lung

Staff Reporter

KOLLAM: The Peoples Initiative Kollam (PIK) has expressed concern over the move to construct buildings on the Government Guest House premises at Asramam.

The sprawling campus should be protected and trees planted there, PIK office-bearers Thengamam Balakrishnan and P. Vishwanathan said here on Wednesday.

The compound is one of the few remaining green lungs in the city.

It is also a heritage property. Several Ministers had assured the people that the guest house compound would be preserved.

The PIK, in association with the Forest Department, had launched a greening programme there by planting saplings.

The Labour Department was taking steps to construct an occupational diseases research centre there, they said.

The PIK called upon Labour Minister Shibu Baby John to drop the move and identify a plot elsewhere.

The PIK office-bearers said Mr. John, being a native of Kollam, should be in the forefront of preserving the heritage property.
