Thiruvananthapuram: There are nearly 3,500 illegal buildings in Munnar, former task force chief K. Suresh Kumar said Monday.He also said that he has nothing to do with Munnar coming to spotlight now. The present move to evict the encroachers began after the High Court verdict, he said.
Suresh Kumar said that baseless allegations are being levelled against him. He asked whether those who raise the point are alleging that he hatched a conspiracy with the High Court judges on the issue.The eviction move will in no way affect the common folk at Munnar. He also said that it was right to demolish the illegal buildings there. There was a government order to demolish the buildings. Suresh Kumar pointed out that if the illegal constructions are not demolished it will be a violation of the court order.
