Youth organizations should come forward to stop extravagance: Speaker P. SriramakrishnanMay 22, 2017
Kochi: Kerala legislative assembly speaker, P. Sriramakrishnan said that a common platform shall be formed under the auspices of youth organizations to contain extravagance and lavishness in marriage and house building. He was talking after handing over 21 flats built under Sunrise Kochi rehabilitation project.
"Those who spend for extravagance in marriage functions and house construction should come forward to tax themselves. It is often said that Kerala is model for the country and the whole world. This status did not occur all at once. A base evolved through social reformation helped to acquire the status. The trend in which youth organizations and political movements turn to charity is commendable. This is a fight too. That is why Solidarity's project get relevance. I am glad to hand over the flats which reflects lights of immense love," Sriramakrishnan said.

Sunrise could evolve as a project with active participation of the kind and human loving people. These efforts are part of reconstructing the nation.
Solidarity State President, T. Shakir said Mattanchery displace the claims of Kerala which boasts of efforts to solve homelessness. A glance at West Kochi will make one to rub off all the claims regarding development model and educational progress of the state.

Novelist T.D. Ramakrishnan said that homelessness can be solved if projects like Sunrise are popularized. "Political activity of the youth has undergone a creative shift in 21st century. Projects like Sunrise could transform as light of hope in an era of violence," he said.
