Of­fi­cer to be sent to re­build Pampa

DNA (Delhi) - - INDIA -

Thiru­vanan­tha­pu­ram: The Ker­ala gov­ern­ment on Thurs­day de­cided to ap­point a se­nior IAS of­fi­cial as spe­cial of­fi­cer to co­or­di­nate in­fra­struc­ture devel­op­ment works at Pampa in Sabari­mala, which suf­fered mas­sive de­struc­tion. Pampa is the base sta­tion from where pil­grims trek to the fa­mous Lord Ayyappa tem­ple atop Sabari­mala. Fol­low­ing the tor­ren­tial rains, the Pampa river had breached its banks at sev­eral places, sub­merg­ing many shops and path­ways. A high-level meet­ing chaired by the CM also de­cided to rope in an ex­pert agency to carry out a study on in­fra­struc­ture devel­op­ment to be taken up in the re­gion and to start con­struc­tion on a war-foot­ing.
