published on May 31, 2014
ARANMULA: In the wake of the Chennai Bench of Green Tribunal of Supreme Court cancelling the environment clearance to the Aranmula airport project, patron of coordination committee against the project Kummanam Rajasekharan has demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy

The state government should take up the moral responsibility for its role in supporting the KGS Group-backed project, he told reporters on Wednesday.

Kummanam pointed out that the “UDF Government had vested interests in the project by taking up 10 per cent share capital and gave clearances for the project in violation of Land Reforms Act and Paddyfield and Watersheds Protection Act of 2008. Chandy owes an answer to the people of Aranmula and the state for the government’s role in promoting the project,” he said.

“The Chief Minister failed in tabling the report of an Assembly panel which found the clearance to the airport project in gross violation of the law and was in absence of environment impact study,” Kummanam said.
