BJP state president V  Muralidharan has said that the State Government should order an inquiry into the shareholding pattern of the promoters of the KGS group, the company behind the proposed  Aranmula airport, whose objectives raised doubts among the people.

Addressing a news conference here on Friday, Muralidharan said that the government should clear the doubts about the background and motives of the company behind the project, which was primarily engaged in real estate business.

The BJP state chief alleged that commercial interest of the Congress High Command was behind the KGS group in the proposed Aranmula airport project.

Muralidharan said that people had doubts over the shareholdings of Anil Ambani and a person close to the Congress High Command behind the KGS group.

‘CM Should Apologise to People’

   Muralidharan said that the Chief Minister should tender an apology to the people for misguiding them on the statements he made in the Assembly on withdrawal of the land acquisition order for 2,000 acres for the airport project instead of the actual 500 acres.    He said that the statement made by the Chief Minister on the reclamation of 500 acres of land for the project would have far-reaching consequences in the state, which would ultimately benefit the real estate gangs engaged in the reclamation of a large stretch of land across the state and would cause severe environmental problems to the people.    “The BJP would launch an agitation against the government decision to reclaim thousands of acres of paddy fields and wet lands in the name of the new order,” Muralidharan said.
