State Government determined to make Onam celebrations environmental friendly



Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran officially inaugurated the Onam Celebrations at the Tourism Directorate office in Thiruvananthapuram, today.



The occasion was marked by unveiling of the logo and festival theme for Onam celebrations. The first copy of the logo and festival theme was handed over to the MLA B Sathyan by the Tourism Minister. Tourism Minister Surendran said that the department will strictly adhere to the ‘environment friendly protocol’ during the Onam celebrations and requested the organisers to follow the guidelines stringently throughout the celebrations.



The other dignitaries who graced the occasion included MLAs DK Murali and CK Hareendran along with Tourism Additional Director M Raghudasan, Deputy Director VS Anil and other prominent cultural and social luminaries of the city.



The inauguration was marked by sounding the traditional Onam ‘Perumbara’ accompanied by performing percussionists as Minister Kadakampally Surendran released the logo and the theme. As a precursor of the grand celebration, the tourism department will set up around 250 swings in and around the city at prominent spots for public use.



This marks the beginning of the tourism department’s Onam festivities in the state.
