Kottayam: The Kerala Government has claimed success in talks held to persuade the protestors to call off their strike against the Gail pipeline project in Mukkam in north Kerala.
But protestors said their main demands were not considered by the government led by Industries Minister AC Moideen.
The protestors said they were meeting on Tuesday to decide future course of action.
The minister said at the meeting held at Kozhikode collectorate that it was not possible to alter the pipeline alignment and the Government would see if anyone would lose their houses in the process of pipe-laying. Those residents losing their land would be rehabilitated, he added.
