Daliyamma gets relief at the initiative of Welfare Party of India.

Daliyamma, 70 year old widower of Neyyatinkara in Trivandrum district, got relief when Chief Minister Mr. Oomen Chandi assured a delegation comprising Welfare Party Kerala state secretaries Shreeja Neyyatinkara and Sasi Pandalam that his government would protect the remaining land of Daliyamma and would construct a house for her. Daliyamma possessed 25 cents of land at the bank of Neyyar river. The river bank, rich with costly sand, has been completely ruined by the onslaught of sand mafia and Daliyamma lost all her land minus five cents and her home almost collapsed.     


Daliyamma had been on the warpath alone against the land mafia from 1983. She did not succumb to the diktat of sand mafia as others had done by giving away their land to them. The heavy rain on 4th August took away almost her land with home. Due to the mishap and nowhere to stay, Daliyamma became mentally disturbed. Welfare Party workers took up her case and shifted and rehabilitated her at a Working Women’s Hostel. The party had conducted a dharna before the secretariat with Daliyamma in the forefront. It got wide media coverage both in print and electronic.


Welfare Party state leaders submitted a memorandum to the chief minister detailing the pitiable situation of Daliyamma on which a report was sought from the district collector. Party leaders had met the collector and discussed the issue in detail with him.


As per district collector’s report, Chief Minister assured the WPI delegation consisting Daliyamma that the government would protect her remaining five cent land and would construct a house for her. Regarding the request for effective steps to conserve the Nayyar river banks, Chief Minister directed the district collector to submit a detailed report in this regard.
