KOZHIKODE: The government has successfully eradicated corruption at the top level of governance, said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. “Corruption still exists at the lower level. The LDF government aims to achieve corruption-free tag for Kerala,” he said inaugurating the  concluding programme of the state government’s first anniversary celebrations here on Monday. He also released the progress report of the one-year-old LDF Government in 35 select sectors as promised in the LDF manifesto. 

Pinarayi said the government will soon launch Kerala Administrative Service and Women’s Department. Title deeds will be distributed to all eligible beneficiaries within the next two years. The process of implementing e-governance reforms is progressing, the Chief Minister said.  

As the LDF Government completes one year, people who criticised the government politically have agreed the government is performing. “People who raised strong criticism are also taking the same stand. The media has declared their support for the future course of action. This will strengthen the government,” he said. 

“We have nothing to hide from the people. As promised in our election manifesto, we are presenting the progress report for the last one year before the people,” said Pinarayi. He urged the people to convey their opinion on the progress report. “The government will work accepting the opinion of the people. We stand for the rights of the common man and not for the rich,” he said. 

The government cannot be satisfied with the achievements. “We need to prosper with time. The backward communities, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes are yet to taste the fruits of development.

“We have spent a lot of money for them. However, we cannot spend time blaming each other because the government has to move forward,” Pinarayi said.
