In response to complaints about the destruction of the Papanasam Punya Bhoomi, Union Minister Suresh Gopi arrived at the site

Varkala: Union Minister Suresh Gopi came directly to the complaint that the Holy Land was destroyed. The Union Minister’s visit comes at a time when the Papanasham hills, the main attraction of Varkala beach, are continuously collapsing due to heavy rains. Following the hill-climbing, the hill-climbing work was also halted after the Collector’s order to demolish the Varkala Cliff, a geological feature, became controversial.

Suresh Gopi also informed that action will be taken to protect the Varkala Cliff. He also informed that the report will be submitted to the Central Ministries after discussing the matter with the officers of the Geology Department and the District Collector.

Suresh Gopi visited Cliff on Saturday morning. On learning that the Union Minister had arrived, the residents of the area also gathered at the place and conveyed their grievances to the Minister.
