Thiruvananthapuram: Leading industrialist Kochouseph Chittilappilly on Saturday announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh to Jaseera, who has been protesting at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar for the past few months against the illegal sand mining in the State.
Chittilappilly had last week announced a reward of the same amount to Sandhya, the housewife who single-handedly took on top LDF leaders for making her and others in her neighbourhood suffer in the name of laying a siege to Cliff House, the official residence of CM Oommen Chandy in Thiruvananthapuram.
31-year-old Jaseera, mother of three, took her crusade to Delhi in October after her two month long sit-in strike in front of the state secretariat yielded no results.
Reacting to the announcement, Jaseera told reporters in Delhi that she was happy that somebody recognised her struggle.
Living under a temporary tent near the historic observatory with 12-year-old Riswana, 9-year-old Shifana and a baby boy Mohammad, the silent protester is bent on to fight it out in the national capital.
