KANNUR: CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan demanded a high-level probe into the last minute decisions taken by the UDF government in favour of corporates, real estate mafias and private parties. “The Cabinet has taken decision on 822 issues in last month. Lion’s share of this was favourable to corporates, real estate mafias and private parties,”Kodiyeri told reporters.  “If the LDF comes to power, all the above decisions will be done away with,” he said.

“The UDF has given away ecologically-significant lands to private parties .The government allotted 2,544 acres of revenue land,including the paddy fields, to the Corporates and real estate mafias. And, ironically this happened when three lakh people in the state are struggling without a cent of land ,” he said.

“Though KPCC president V M Sudheeran urged to cancel some of the decisions taken in violation of the rules and regulations, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy discarded it and acted as per his discretion,” the CPM leader said. “However, the Chief Minister was forced to withdraw some of these decision later following pressure from a few Congress MLAs,” he said.

“But, even then the Chief minister refused to cancel the decision to transfer land to Hope Plantation in Idukki,” he added.
