Defence Minister A K Antony should answer why the Central Government has been continuously avoiding Kerala from various Central Projects, Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan has said. He was speaking after inaugurating an election convention of the LDF-backed independent candidate Innocent here on Tuesday.

VS said though Antony has a major power in Central cabinet, he could not do anything for the state. When the state has lost the Palakkad coach factory owing to lack of budget allocation, he had not taken any step. And, at the time when Centre turned a blind eye towards the development of  the Vizhinjam Port without allocating funds, Antony also kept mum on the matter, V S said.

Now, with Lok Sabha polls round the corner, Antony has entered the state soliciting votes for the UDF candidates, but he could address the public only after answering the question as he is responsible person, he said.
