THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, SEPT. 2. The Federation of Residents Associations, Thiruvananthapuram (FRAT) today appealed to the Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy, to create a separate department headed by a Minister for the development of the capital city.
A FRAT delegation that met Mr. Chandy submitted a memorandum, urging him to take the initiative in restoring the lost glory of the city and spur development activities to bring it on a par with metro cities like Bangalore and Hyderabad.
The memorandum pointed out that scattered efforts by previous Governments had failed to ensure comprehensive development of the city infrastructure.
The delegation led by the FRAT general secretary, Punchakary Ravi, stressed the need for a separate department to coordinate the activities of various departments and agencies and expedite the ambitious schemes drawn up by the Antony regime.
