Thiruvananthapuram: Based on the press release by the joint protest council on 22 August 2018, the hunger strike observed by the cashew entrepreneurs  and their families in front of the Secretariat in Thiruvananthapuram on Thiruvonam day was a grand success with the participation of around 100  cashew industrialists and their families.

The  KPCC president MM. Hassan  inaugurated the  hunger strike.   In his  inaugural  address, Hassan promised all support for the Joint Protest Council until a viable solution is found in order to save the industry, the entrepreneurs as well as the lakhs of workers involved in it. 


There after the Rajya Sabha member Suresh Gopi visited the striking entrepreneurs and explained the steps he had tried  in 2016 in order to get out the industry from collapse and revive it  by implementing the concept of a Cashew Board from the Centre Government. 

He said to achieve that he met the Prime Minister as well as few ministers.  The M.P also said he is fully aware of the grave situation which led to the inevitable hunger strike by the cashew entrepreneurs on the auspicious Thiruvonam day. He also, promised us that he will try his level best to save and revive the industry.


The following are the urgent demands of the Joint Protest Council:

* Stop all recovery proceedings initiated by the banks against the cashew entrepreneurs with immediate effect.
* Stop all recovery measures initiated by the Centre Government as well as State Government departments against the Cashew entrepreneurs with immediate effect.
* Based on the decisions taken by the hon’ble Chief Minister, RBI , SLBC and all the banks involved, the entrepreneurs, whose Accounts fell into the category of NPA,  submitted revival plans to their respective banks prior to March 31, 2018; but, so far the banks have not agreed to that. We appeal to the hon’ble Chief Minister to persuade the banks to implement  the same.
* Revive this most important 100 years old traditional industry at any cost and provide support and equip the industrialists to maintain the same in Kerala.
