Kannur, Nov 29: With the Union Government not ready to change the alignment of the upcoming bypass for National Highway development, the dream of Vayalkkilikal at Keezhattur, which had been on an agitational path against the project, ended in despair.
The final notification issued by the Union Government has put an end to speculation regarding the change of alignment, keeping Keezhattur paddy fields out. The move to build the bypass through the fields had led to protests from farmers led by Vayalkkilikal.
With the final notification, hopes of Vayalkkilikal to stall the project with the help of the ruling BJP at the Centre suffered a setback.
The notification says land owners should be present with documents during the final hearing on January 11.
