Petition to P. A. Mohammed Riyas, Minister of Public Works

Main Eastern Highway -22​.​17 km from Placheri to Ponkunnam.

We, the undersigned would like to inform you about a serious issue which needs your urgent attention.  This complaint is regarding issues in the construction of Main Eastern Highway especially the stretch of  22​.​17 km from Placheri to Ponkunnam by KSTP.  We need to bring your attention of narrow down the important city in this stretch  Karickattor location at Google map. and  Manimala at Also, we failed to understand the reason for the four hairpin curves at muleplavu ,1km far from Manimala city, and each of these curves at a distance of 25 meters. Unfortunately, KSTP engineering failed to find out the proper place to make the bridge in muleplavu.  It has been witnessed many small accidents, we are afraid it will be a dangerous zone in near future. Main Eastern Highway is categorized as State Highway - 08 ( SH-08 ) of Kerala. It is the second-longest State Highway of Kerala covering a distance of 153.6 km. The districts it passes through are Kollam, Pathanamthitta, Kottayam, Idukki, and Ernakulam. The upgrading work of Punalur -Ponkunnam-Thodupuzha stretch is currently under progress as part of the World Bank-funded Kerala State Transport Project (KSTP). At present development of Punalur- Ponukunnam    82 KM  distance is divided into Pnokunam- Placheri  22 KM stretch, Placheri - Konni 30 KM  stretch, Konni -Punalur  30 Km stretch. The above work was done through the KSTP  contracting with  Sreedhanya (248.63 core ), EKK infrastructure limited (279 Core ),RDFCVCC (221.04 core) respectively.  With respect to this budget, Sreedhanya estimated 11.30 cores per KM development. The width of this stretch is about 10-14 meters which itself is not developed to its capacity with its available land and quality of parallel MC road  SH 01 however, we observed many important cities narrow down further from this limit. Which is going to be a bottleneck in traffic. The main trunk road to Sabarimala, Kerala's Largest Pilgrim Centre starts from Main Eastern Highway near Pathanamthitta.  It is also the shortest route to the Kerala State Capital Thiruvananthapuram from Kumali and other major townships of Idukki district Like Munnar, Kattappana, Thodupuzha, Moolamattam, Nedumkandam etc We, therefore, request you to kindly take necessary action to mend the ways so that people of the area have good traffic clean roads. in solidarity, Eastern Highway protection  group.

Reopen Kailashahar Airport in Tripura by 2021 - Make It Operational ASAP - IXH VEKR AAI

Need to reopen Kailashahar airport is very much critical and urgent affair for the people of northern part of the state of Tripura. Students of North Tripura and adjacent places struggle to commute if they wish to go outside Northeast for higher studies Medical patients need it the most when there is an emergency medical treatment / surgery to be done in places like Kolkata or so Industrial development and business growth are key to growth of a region resulting in many opportunities e.g. new employment generation, availability of goods and services, better companies visiting the colleges for recruitment etc. Tourism industry depending on the tourist spot UNAKOTI has a huge potential leading to more revenue collection by Govt. Overall, the people of northern part of the state i.e. Dharmanagar, Kanchanpur, Kumarghat, Kailashahar and nearby areas deserve to have an airport at the disposal since traveling to Agartala for the same purpose is not no convenient by many from this part of the state Requesting to expedite the work and make the Kailashahar airport operational before the end of the year 2021.#NarendraModi #Tripura #TransformingTripura #tripuratourism #AgartalaAirport #airports #airportvibes #airportservices #airportlife #unakoti #northtripura #kailashahar #dharmanagar #aai #iata #pmoReference links:

End slavery of Indians in Agro Pontino, Italy

Hindi I just read online news about the exploitation of Indians, particularly Sikhs in the Agro Pontino region of Italy.  “I was working 12-13 hours a day, including Sundays, with no holidays, no rest,” Singh said. The farm owner paid him 100 to 150 euros ($120 to $175) a month, he said, which amounts to less than 50 cents an hour. The legal minimum for farmworkers is around 10 euros an hour. The working conditions are inhumane and they are treated likes slaves. Upon resistance, they are threatened to be killed. “When I found a lawyer ready to help me, (the owner) told me... ‘I’ll kill you, I’ll dig a hole, throw you in it, and fill it up... he had a gun, I saw it,” he recalled. Surprisingly, this region produces Mozzarella which is sold at around €15/kg and the agriculture Mafia earns a lot of profit out of the hard work of these people. The UN’s special rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery estimated in 2018 that more than 400,000 agricultural workers in Italy risk being exploited and almost 100,000 likely face  “inhumane conditions”. Last month, a 27-year-old from Mali collapsed and died in the southeastern Apulia region after working a day in the fields in temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. The problem of exploitation of farm workers has not gone unnoticed in parliament. It was under an anti-caporali law passed in 2016 that Singh’s employer was prosecuted. But unions say there are still too few checks and labour inspectors to enforce the law properly. Sociologist Omizzolo, who works with the Eurispes think tank, spent years researching farm labour abuse in the Latina area - some of it undercover. Many helpless Indians are being exploited in a foreign country and no one is speaking up for them. Those who speak up are forced to go into hiding. There are too many lives at stake. It is up to common citizens in India to speak up. Sign my petition to ensure legally-approved working conditions are enforced in Italy.
