Web Desk(Tvm)Updated: Thursday Dec 1, 2022

Thiruvananthapuram : There would be no going back on Vizhinjam project, clarified Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. It is not practical to stop construction works. Projects in the larger  interest of the community shall not be impeded by resistance from some corner. All those wishing well for the state’s future must cooperate in this regard, said CM.

There would be no coastal erosion owing to the project being done. An expert committee has conducted studies  and found there is no such risk. There is nothing more for the govt to add in that regard. Groups with vested interests are trying to stall development, said CM.

Of the 7 demands raised in Vizhinjam, the cabinet has approved 6. Dropping the project would mean Kerala will lose its credibility. Even when there exist  political differences,  stopping of a project by successive government would mean investors will never look to this direction. Whatever the scare tactics might be, it will not thwart the government, said CM.
