Kerala CM calls for increasing investment in infrastructure project
Appealing to investors and industries to change mindset about Kerala, Chief Minister of state Oommen Chandy Friday stressed on the need to increase investment in infrastructure projects in the state.
"Kerala has lot of opportunities, but we are not in a position to utilize those opportunities. So we want to inform our chances, our opportunities to others. There is a feeling that Kerala is against investment, it is not welcoming industries. We want to change that," said Chandy while speaking on the sidelines of the Bengaluru leg of 'Emerging Kerala' seminar.
Now, Kerala has not strong communist ideologies and after congress governance, there are huge opportunities in the state.
"We lost a lot of chances in the past. We are very much ahead in health and education but infrastructure we are lacking very badly. Slogans and agitations will not create results," said Chandy while criticizing communists ideologies.
Kerala plans to double its power generation capacity by commissioning more power projects.
It has already identified more than 1,600 hectares of land for setting up industries.
Praising to the seminar, Chandy said the programme, already held in Delhi and Mumbai, would attract investors in Kerala.
