Rivers in the city are widely polluted and the bio-diversity has been damaged,largely in Kozhikode city.
Many environmentalists and activists have raised this issue.
However,nothing has taken to improve the status of dying rivers.Garbage and chicken wastes are widely dumping to rivers.
Kallayi river is one of the most nostalgic and historical element in every Calicutan’s mind.
Activists took pledge, for the conservation of rivers at a program organised by the Kozhikode District River Conservation Co-ordination Committee near the Kallayi River on Saturday. Kozhikode Corporation Opposition Leader M.T Padma administered the pledge.
