Protest against petrol station

Today more than 30 parents gathered to show their protest about the planned construction of Petrol Station in front of St.Philomena School. Parents are in fear and worried that the construction will cause traffic congestion with air and noise pollution.

The rally was peaceful. It ended without incident and the protestors only carried banners within the school compound as per police request. The proposed petrol station is too near the school. The parents say they were not consulted on the planned construction and surprises with the approval given by the local authorities.
