The Thaddesa Mithram launched the street play which is one of the most popular and wide spread form of drama mainly intended to ensure and improve people participation in Grama Sabhas. The State level inauguration of the Street Play was flagged off by Dr.K.T.Jaleel, (Minister for Local Self-Governments, Welfare of Minorities, Wakf and Haj Pilgrimage) on 12th July 2017 at Gandhi Park, Thiruvananthapuram. Shri.V.V.Ramesan, Municipal Chambers Chairman presided over the function. Shri.P.Balakiran IAS, Project Director delivered welcome speech and Dr.V.P.Sukumaran, Deputy Project Director delivered vote of Thanks
The primary goal of street play was to create awareness among general public regarding the importance of attending Grama Sabha. The street play had received a significant appreciation of the society as a whole for its simple and creative way of presentation while long duration dramas fail to convey proper message to its spectators. The Street play was performed by Kerala Police (Janamaithri) at 14 districts, 9 important centres in every district for three days. The street play-“Oru Gramam Pranja Kadha”- narrates the story of a village, which faces various issues and hurdles which were overcome by the villagers by strengthening the Grama Sabhas.
