Sarovaram Bio Park director asked to pay fine

After failing to turn up at Ombudsman's sitting


25 March 2010

Special Correspondent, Kozhikode:

Ombudsman for Local Self-government Institutions M.R. Hariharan Nair, on Wednesday, ordered issue of notice imposing a fine on the director of the Sarovaram Bio Park.

The order was issued after the director failed to respond to a case taken by the ombudsman suo motu in December on a newspaper report about lack of toilet facilities at the bio park. The director was to appear before the ombudsman at its sitting on Wednesday, but did not. The ombudsman said that the director's lapse was ‘condemnable and irresponsible' and ordered issue of notice within a week asking him to pay a fine.

Biogas plant

Acting on a newspaper report on Wednesday, the ombudsman also directed the secretary of Ramanattukaran panchayat to explain why the biogas plant for processing garbage that was set up a year ago has not been commissioned.

The biogas plant was set up at a cost of Rs.25 lakh near Chethupalam canal. The panchayat secretary has been directed to submit his explanation at the next sitting of ombudsman on April 27.

The ombudsman's order was in response to a newspaper report which said the commissioning of the biogas plant had been delayed because electricity connection to operate a water pump had not been obtained.

The ombudsman examined 40 petitions at his sitting at Kozhikode Collectorate on Wednesday. Ten cases were disposed of.
