Even amidst the Opposition’s outrage over the alleged land encroachment and a plethora of breach of laws surrounding the water-theme park owned by industrialist-turned-politician P. V. Anwar MLA, the natives and local leaders are all praise for the park owing to the varied ‘employment opportunities’ it made possible.
The MLA’s PVR Entertainment Natural Park started functioning at Koodaranhi panchayat in Kozhikode earlier this year. The panchayat granted licence for the water-theme park in June and licence for the garden inside the park was given in November 2016.
The Opposition parties led by Kerala Congress alleged that the land in which the park was built was encroached upon by the legislator and his people. Following this, various channels in the State had reported that nearly 10 breaches of laws were committed by Anwar in connection with the operation of the park.
