04 Jul This morning desabhimani came with a lead article on the delay pestering the smart city. In fact for the delay in smart city the responsibility need to go to vs when he was oppo leader during the last term of chandy as cm. in mathrubhoomi vs wrote a edit page article that nailed the Smart city once and for all during Chandys last term. Vs wrote mr chandy don’t sell the precious land to a private developer. And chandy based on the continued oppo by vs abdicated the project. And finally only in the present chandy term smart city came into being. Vs voiced a subdued objection. In fact despite seminar held in TVm on Kerala vikasanam by cpm, there was no vikasanam promoted by the party. Any development in the public sector or state sector in Kerala is intentionally done to retain several berths in such companies from top wrung to the bottom for the party cadres and leaders. Finally the companies became a burden on the tax payer eating away the limited resources of the state. Unfortunately the seesaw between the ldf and udf in Kerala had beaten the development of the state to prehistoric days. The state lived only because of the gulf remittances by the expats. The anti development slogan of the ldf is same as only in the public sector. Look at the wagon factory and its fate. We followed the socialist path and five year plan models directly from ussr and finally ended up after three decades of self rule, forcing Chandrasekhar govt to pledged 35 tons of gold in the Bank of England for funds to pay the salary of central staff. The nararasimha rao regime opened up the country for pvt investment and now there is prosperity. Certainly the more than third or more of population is in the grips of poverty. The pop burden of india is the largest in the world. And it is 1.33 billion. Isms will not save them. Only industry and equity can emancipate these people. This is the writing on the wall. The ldf need to know this. The ldf leadership will not learn this as they live in homes and offices with I homes, iPads and inverted acs and Hd TVs.
