Twenty20 Kizhakkambalam, a project initiated to demolish the ‘LakshamVeedu colonies’ under Kizhakkambalam Panchayath to rebuild them to ‘God’s Villa’ was inaugurated by versatile actor, Kamal Hassan along with Makkal Neethimayam members - C.K Kumaravel, P A Rajanarayanan, Kizhakkambalam Grama Panchayath President - KV Jacob , Vice President - Jincy Aji, Eastern Group MD - Navas Meeran, Arjuna Naturals Extracts MD - P J Kunjachan.



Twenty20 along with Kizhakkambalam Panchayat has rebuilded 73 houses namely Njarallur (37 houses), Velangu (24 houses), Kanamburam (8 houses) and Makkenikkara (4 houses). As a part of the project, the completed 37 houses of Njarallur Colony were handed over to the families along with Possession Certificate by Kamal Hassan. The house in four cents includes two bedrooms, a hall, and kitchen with car parking facility along with amenities such as European toilet, sink, light and water. Also, Twenty20 has provided accessories like fan, fancy lights, furniture, dining tables, mixer/grinder, beds, TV, and sofa sets worth Rs 2 lakh at 50 per cent of the cost. Water connections are provided to each house with independent storage tanks of 1000 litres. Besides that, a 25,000 litre common water tank, two wells and a bore-well is also constructed to make sure water supply is available for the colony.



Commenting on the occasion, Kamal Haasan, says, “I have come here not as a dignitary but as a partner, and will continuously, shamelessly copy the idea implemented by my friend Sabu M Jacob that helps in nation building. My vision is not blurred by party life. With a single vision and healthiest competition both me and Sabu Jacob will work as an individual of civic citizen. For executing good ideas, we need power. With sheer perseverance one can overcome any hindrances. Earnestness is the first thing I see here. For nation building, one must change personally. The main goal of neo political leaders is to secure more money for development rather than to earn money”.



Entire cost for the Njarellur project is six crores out of which Twenty20 has spent five crores 26 lakhs and the Panchayath spent 74 lakhs under the government scheme ‘LakshamVeeduOttaveedakkal Project’. Along with other welfare activities, Twenty20 Kizhakkambalam has completed 300 houses for the poor and renovated 800 houses with modern amenities.



Sabu M Jacob, Twenty20 - Chief Co-Ordinator & MD, Kitex Garments, says,” Successive political parties have ruled the panchayat for 20 years. But the life of voters, who were poor, remained the same. That’s why I decided to change their lives. I want to make Kizhakkambalam Panchayat the best in the country by the year 2020”.
