K. Sivadasan Nair, MLA, in supporting the private airport project at Aranmula, is trying to whitewash the wrong-doings of the private company, the Aranmula Heritage Village Protection Action Council has said.

In a statement issued here on Saturday, action council office-bearers K. Haridas and P.R. Shaji termed it strange to hear the MLA saying that it was his responsibility to implement the airport project of a Chennai-based private company.

The MLA had stooped to the level of ‘spokesperson’ of the corporate company by making such an anti-people statement, they said.

The existing law was unambiguously against conversion of paddy and wetlands as it would bring about disastrous environment degradation.
