“We firmly believe that all recent episodes of landslips have taken place in areas located closer to quarrying sites.
At least the rules related to mining and quarrying should be enforced very strictly,” said NAPM State convenor Kusumam Joseph, who convened the meeting.
The participants of the meet also took an oath expressing their willingness to fight for the cause and stand united across Kerala to resist illegal mining and quarrying business.
For a cause: Anti-quarry activists take an oath under the leadership of environmentalist Thayat Balan at the police conference hall in Kozhikode on Sunday.
They clarified that the agitation was against the reckless exploitation of natural resources for business purposes, violating existing rules and safety guidelines.
