THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: “The government views the CET incident where a girl student got killed after being hit by a vehicle driven by her college mates seriously,” Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said on Tuesday.
At the post-Cabinet briefing, Chandy said the government would not allow such incidents on campuses and the high-level meeting would chalk out the action to be taken. “There can be celebrations. But they should be according to our tradition and culture. No one will be permitted to take law into their hands using the organisational might they have,” he said.
Answering questions, Chandy added that the Adoor college incident in which a fire engine was used for college celebrations was unacceptable.The chief minister will holds talks with various social groups on their concerns on the Vizhinjam project. The Latin Church was not against the project, but they only aired some concerns, Chandy said. The light metro project for Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikdoe would be implemented on the lines of the Kochi Metro rail project, said Chandy.
“The DPR has been completed and we have approached the Centre for its nod. Further decisions will be taken based on the Union Government’s approval,” the chief minister said.
