Kasargod: Government has drawn up a project to provide employment to endosulfan victims after giving them proper training, Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy today said.
The Human Rights Commission had given certain instructions to the government and it would be implemented in a time-bound manner, Mr Chandy said.
The aim of the state government is to provide treatment and rehabilitate endosulfan victims. However, the government alone would not be able to do this, he said, adding, "Everyone in various sectors should unite together and come forward to help the endosulfan victims."
He was speaking after inaugurating a two-day national workshop 'Concord 2012' (Consultative Workshop on Comprehensive rehabilitation of endosulfan victims and rejuvenation of ecosystem in Kasargod district) in Kasargod.
The proposed medical college in Kasargod district was to extend treatment to endosulfan victims, he said.
Delegates from across the country, relatives of endosulfan victims and Environment activists are attending the workshop.
