The Kerala Sasthra Sahithya Parishad (KSSP) has urged the authorities to reject the Kasturirangan report on Western Ghats as it is “anti-farmer and anti-people” and implement the Gadgil committee report, which is “more farmer-friendly” after discussing it with stakeholders, including farmers.

District president of the science movement P.K. Balakrishnan and district secretary T.P. Damodaran, in a release issued here, said the Gadgil committee report was more comprehensive, with a combination of measures to protect the ecosystem as well as the farmers in the area. The government should however come forward to allay the apprehensions about the report in the minds of the farmers and other people,” they said.

The KSSP office-bearers criticised the Union government’s move to implement the Kasturirangan report in an “undemocratic and unilateral fashion.” They cautioned the State government about “vested interests which are out to destroy public property on the pretext of protesting against the report.”
