Use palm, coconut products during Tamil conference, says Toddy Movement

Coimbatore: The Tamil Nadu Toddy Movement has asked the Chief Minister to use the World Classical Tamil Conference in June as a platform for the use of coconut and palm products. Field Co-ordinator of Tamil Nadu Toddy Movement S. Nallasamy said that since the weather during the conference would be hot, palm fruits (nungu) and tender coconuts would come in handy. Coconut jaggery, palm jaggery, “karupatti” and “panangarkandu” should be used in the preparation of food items for delegates of the conference. Plastics should be completely avoided during the conference. Instead items made of palm and coconut leaves should be used. Mr. Nallasamy also sought a ban on sale of aerated, soft drinks and Indian Made Foreign Liquor at the conference venue. Instead toddy should be sold in packed cans and packs. These measures would help give an economic relief to agriculture communities.
