Opposition Leader V S Achuthanandan on Friday denied Chief Minister Oommen Chandy’s claim that PCPIR and NIMS projects figured in the Emerging Kerala were formulated by the LDF Government.

In a reply to the Chief Minister’s letter, VS said that he had called for a Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the PCPIR, Kochi, Kochi-Palakkad NIMS and Electronic hub at Amballoor, Kochi.

Though the Chief Minister had offered to give it, it was not attached with the Chief Minister’s letter, VS said. The PCPIR and NIMS projects are Central projects. Central Government had set the criteria of 62,000 acres for PCPIR and 12,500 acres for NIMS.

LDF Government had not prepared any such projects. The LDF Government had mooted to set up Petro chemical industry at FACT’s 600 acre land at Malamukal and Electronic hub at 334 acre at Amballoor.

He said that the LDF had not objected to the petro chemical project or electronic hub. But under the cover of the projects planned in 300 acres and 600 acre, the UDF Government was planning to acquire 13,000 acres and 62,000 acres of land respectively and set apart 70 percent of it for real estate purposes, he alleged.
