PALAKKAD: The Finance Minister, K. Sankaranarayanan, has said that the Government will not give permission to reopen cola companies since they are opposed by the people for depleting their groundwater.

Speaking at the inaugural function of the 12th edition of Mathrubhumi daily here today, the Minister said that "even if the court allow these companies to reopen, the Government cannot allow it.''

In his inaugural address Shekari Varma, son of the late K.P. Kesava Menon, the founder editor of Mathrubhumi said Palakkad was unique in many ways.

The K.P. Kesava Menon complex was dedicated by the Leader of the Opposition, V.S. Achuthanandan. The function was presided over by M.P. Veerendrakumar, MP and Chairman-cum-Managing Director of Mathrubhumi publications.
