Dredge sand sale to resume in Kerala 22.6.2017
Malappuram: Kerala"s first dredge sand refinery that produces construction grade sand at the lowest price can now resume its functioning. The Kerala High Court has stayed the order of National Green Tribunal"s southern bench shutting it down days after its inauguration last month.

They set up the `8-crore processing unit for the ports department"s experimental project on the Public Private Participation (PPP) model.

The Congress vice-president gets his energy from evening runs and his occasional lessons in Aikido, a Japanese martial arts form. He runs on pre-planned routes wherever he stays and goes swimming or cycling. Yogi Adityanath does yoga with Baba Ramdev “Rahul Gandhi works out anywhere and anytime. He has great stamina.
