Kerala High Court dismisses plea to shift capital to Thrissur

The Kerala High Court on Monday dismissed a PIL seeking direction to shift the state capital from Thiruvananthapuram to Thrissur. The petition was filed by Pothujanasakhi, an organized organization based in Udayamperur, Ernakulam. Accordingly, a study conducted by the petitioner revealed that Thrissur, which was located in the heart of the State, was the most suitable place for the capital. The administration of the state would be easier from Thrissur than from Thiruvananthapuram.
