The Kerala government on Thursday blasted the Left for seeking to build an airport near the Sabarimala temple while in power and opposing it while out of power.
Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the Aranmula airport would aid pilgrims and bring in revenue to the state. Chandy pointed out that opposition leader V.S. Achuthanandan, while he was chief minister, cleared the airport project in 2011. “This is unfortunate. While in office, you take one position; while in opposition, you take a diametrically opposite stand,” he told the Left in response to demands that the project should be reviewed.
