A group of tribals from Wayanad in Kerala have said that they will protest outside the house of Manju Warrier, the lady Superstar of Mollywood, in Thrissur for failing to keep her promises. Manju Warrier had promised that she would get 57 houses constructed for poor families living in Wayanad’s Parakkuni Colony an year ago.
The actress had also spoken with the district officials to plan the design of the project. The Manju Warrier Foundation has informed that they would construct houses with basic facilities for 57 families belonging to the Panniya community at Parakunni of the Panamaram grama panchayat at a cost of Rs 1.88 crore. A letter was also sent to the collector, minister of the concerned department, Panamaram grama panchayat on January 20, 2017. Approval was also given for construction activities by the Scheduled Caste Department. But after such a long time the people in the tribal colony claim that no work has been started yet. They also complain that they are not getting any other help from the government.
In a recent press conference, the tribal leaders had said that Manju Warrier’s failure in fulfilling her words have compelled them to start an open protest. They also added that the initial stage of the protest will be carried out on February 13 in front of Manju’s house in Thrissur.
In the acting front, Manju Warrier is currently awaiting the release of her upcoming movie Lucifer, which has Mohanlal in the lead role. The film marks the directorial debut of Prithviraj Sukumaran and also has Tovino Thomas, Vivek Oberoi, and Kalabhavan Shajon in prominent roles.
