Probe about Aranmula International Airport project
Environmental issues concerning the controversial airport project at Aranmula can never be resolved through dialogues, Aranmula Heritage Village Action Council chief patron Kummanam Rajashekharan (Kerala State Organizing Secretary at VHP), has said. His case against KGS was now succeeded. Kummanam Rajasekharan has demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy The state government should take up the moral responsibility for its role in supporting the KGS Group-backed project. The UDF Government had vested interests in the project by taking up 10 per cent share capital and gave clearances for the project in violation of Land Reforms Act and Paddy field and Watersheds Protection Act of 2008. Chandy owes an answer to the people of Aranmula and the state for the government’s role in promoting the project, he said.
