Dist. Collector Misinterpreted Govt Order, Abetted Nitta Gelatin, Alleges Kathikudam Action Council

Chalakudy: The Kathikudam Action Council criticized the decision of the District Collector of Thrissur in connection with the water pollution issue by Nitta Gelatin plant. The Council alleged that the Collector abetted the Nitta Gelatin India Ltd. after misinterpreting a government order on rerouting the existing treated water discharged pipeline. The order on discharge of treated water has been misread as collection of water, they added. The Collector's decision was taken in a meeting which included Minister EP Jayarajan.
