Thiruvananthapuram: Governor R.S. Gavai on Wednesday said the State government had laudably expanded the safety net for the under privileged sections of society through various social security packages such as the Comprehensive Health Insurance scheme.
Speaking after taking the National Salute at the Republic Day parade at the Central Stadium here, Mr. Gavai said the government had commendably contained the increase in the price of essential commodities and also extended credit facility to farmers.
Citing the success of the IT@school programme, the Governor urged the government to harness technology to improve the efficacy of public grievances rectifying mechanisms and proper marketing of agricultural products. The IT sector in the State was booming, with the targeted investment slated to touch Rs.10,000 crore.
The recently established Kerala University of Medical and Allied Sciences should be developed as a centre of innovation. People should sink rigid differences and stand as one to face modern day challenges, he said.
Chief Minister V. S. Achuthanandan was present. Armed units of the Army 16 Madras (Travancore) Regiment, Indian Air Force, Central Reserve Police Force, Railway Protection Force, Special Armed Police, Thiruvananthapuram City Armed Reserve Police and the Kerala Prisons Department participated in the parade.
