Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said in Thiruvananthapuram on Friday that he did not agree with the view of the Union Minister of State for Home affairs Mullappally Ramachandran that the police investigation into the T. P. Chandrasekharan murder case was inadequate.
The police had investigated the case in an efficient manner and he did not share Mr. Ramachandran’s view regarding the investigation. He did not know under what circumstances Mr. Ramachandran had commented on the investigation.
Addressing a press conference on the second anniversary of the UDF government, the Chief Minister said that his government had performed well during the two years in office. The slender majority for the government in the Assembly and the problems in the ruling front did not affect decision making. Differences of opinions were settled through discussions while results were achieved through united action.
The Cabinet had worked as a team and each Minister had fulfilled his or her role. The government had the full backing of the Congress party and United Democratic Front.
Mr. Chandy noted that the flagship programmes of the government such as the Kochi Metro, SmartCity, Kannur airport, Vizhinjam port and Kollam-Kottappuram national water way were heading towards fulfilment. The formal inauguration of the Kochi Metro project would take place on June 5. The first phase of construction of the SmartCity project would start in July. Technical bids for runway of Kannur airport had been invited and work would start soon.
