We have put forward some points for discussion not to criticize the investment initiative of the Kerala Government. We have initiated the discussion with a positive and open mind. It should be noted that a mere 15 to 20 per cent of all the project proposals in Emerging Kerala might have been prepared in a casual and unprofessional way. It is not correct to tarnish Emerging Kerala as a whole just by considering these projects. We do not agree with the anti-development stand of the LDF. Today the Chief Minister himself has stated that all impractical project proposals will be reviewed. We welcome this corrective measure from the Government's side. Officers and other functionaries must be urged to prepare projects with more care while putting them up for public discussion. Even if top level bureaucrats review the proposals again , it would be appropriate if the political leadership can also scrutinize the proposals again. Such a step, we are sure, will ensure that the entire initiative will be flawless.
We wish Emerging Kerala all success and pledge our cooperation and support in the Government's effort's to bring in sustainable development and inclusive growth. When projects are being implemented periodic monitoring and social,economic and environmental auditing can be done.Thus Kerala can again put forward its own developmental model to the world.
