Sea erosion: Tension prevails as fishermen prevent Kerala Minister, MLA from visiting Valiyathura coast

Thiruvananthapuram, Jun 13 (UNI) Tension prevailed for sometime when agitated fishermen, who lost their houses, due to highwaves prevented Kerala Water Resources Minister K Krishnankutty during his visit to Valiyathura coast on Thursday.
In protest against the Government's failure in taking steps to construct sea wall, the fishermen blocked the Minister, who came along with Congress MLA VS Shivakumar to explain the measures taken by the Government to control sea erosion.
However, a large number of police personnel deployed in the area brought the situation under control. Later the Minister left the place with out visiting damaged houses in the coastal areas as the police denied permission citing more protest from the fisherfolk.
The agitators, who urged the administration to start construction of sea wall, felt that several promises by the Government were not fulfilled till this time.
The Minister who announced a special meeting of the stakeholders today itself said additional Rs three crore was sanctioned for various works.
The Cabinet which met on Wednesday has sanctioned Rs 22.5 crore for coastal protection measures in the State, the Minister added.
It may be noted that coastal people of Ambalappuzha blocked National Highway (NH)-66 on Tuesday alleging that the Government failed to construct sea walls.
Later, VS Shivakumar MLA said arrangements are being done to bring rocks from neighbouring areas for the construction of sea walls.
