Alert against leptospirosis in Alappuzha 25.6.2017
ALAPPUZHA: At a time when the recurring fever situation continues to take a toll in the state, water-logged areas in the district are under rat fever threat. The bacterial disease is transmitted mostly through rodent, and most of the cases come from canal de-silting or paddy workers. The district administration has now issued an alert against leptospirosis. "Incidence of waterborne diseases especially leptospirosis has, of late, been noticed throughout the year in places like water logged Kuttanad," said Dr R.V.

Kerala: Green activists cry foul over mining concessions 24.6.2017
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Environmental activists are shocked at the reasons the state government had trotted out to amend Kerala Minor Mineral Concession Rules to favour quarry owners. The Cabinet had the other day restored the minimum permissible distance limit for quarrying to 50 metres from roads, canals, rivers, and residential buildings. The UDF government had made it 100 metres. One of the reasons cited by industries minister A. C. Moideen for the amendment was that the rules issued by the Central government in 2016 and those followed by several other States prescribed only 50 metres. "This is a lie," said lawyer and environmental activist Harish Vasudevan. "Take the minor mineral concessions rules of neighbouring states like Karnataka or Tamil Nadu. In the case of Karnataka, a quarry that uses explosive to blast rocks will have to keep a minimum distance of 200 metres from residential areas. For Tamil Nadu, it is 300 metres. For Haryana, too, it is 300 metres," he said. Mr ...
