Thiruvananthapuram | The Kerala Cabinet today lauded the effort taken by Sports Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishanan for the successful conduct of the National Games in the Stae.
Briefing on Cabinet decisions, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the CBI told the Kerala High Court that there were no irregularities found in the conduct of the National Games, proving that corruption allegation by the Opposition was baseless.
He said the report of the CBI submitted in the court came as a heavy blow to those, including responsible elected representatives, who raised baseless allegations regarding the conduct of the games.
Such acts that were aimed at tarnishing the collective efforts behind the conduct of the games should have been avoided. Those elected representatives who raised false allegations should seek apology from the people of Kerala. He claimed that the games were conducted in a most satisfactory manner.
On other decisions, he said the Cabinet has decided to hand over one acre of land at Ezhoor Village in Ernakulam District for the construction of Fire Station and Staff Quarters.
Government has decided to go ahead with the Sea-Plane project. Follow-up activities regarding the same will be initiated after carrying out discussions with the companies that have come forward for its operation.
He said 35.65 ares of land with the Irrigation Department in Tirurangadi Taluk will be handed over for starting Multi-Grade Learning Centre at Kalamthuruthi.
He said 202.35 acres of land will be given for setting up Government ITI at Peringom Village in Kannur District.
