The people of Eloor and Edayar are under trauma as the deaths due to chronic diseases continue.

The Kerala High Court had suggested that the construction of polluting industries should not be allowed in the Edayar industrial belt. The court made the suggestion on June 19 while considering a petition filed by Periyar Malineekarana Virudha Samithi. The 450-acre industrial area established in 1962 falls under the Kadungalloor panchayat.
