Centre neglecting State: CPI(M)

Thiruvananthapuram: The CPI(M) Kerala unit has protested what it termed as the Centre's "extreme neglect" towards the various demands of the State.

In a statement here on Sunday, the party State secretariat said the latest example of the Centre's "negative attitude" to Kerala was denial of security clearance for the proposed Vizhinjam international transhipment container terminal project.

The implementation of the Vizhinjam port project, which was very close to the international sea route, would bring in all-round development to the State. "The Centre's decision to deny clearance to the project is mysterious,'' the statement said.

Work on expansion of Thiruvananthapuram airport had not yet been completed. The Vallarpadam transhipment container terminal project at Kochi, the foundation stone for which was laid by the Prime Minister, was yet to get clearance from the Union Environment Ministry, it said.

While Kerala was reeling under a financial crisis, the Union Government was not allowing the State to increase its borrowal limit. The State was facing the crisis because of the `faulty' economic policies of the Centre, the statement alleged. - PTI
