The Centre on Friday asked the newly formed CPI(M)- led LDF government in Kerala to “cooperate” with them in the area of development and announced a set of multi-crore development projects for the state.

The projects included a Central Institute of Plastic Engineering and Technology, Rs 1000 crore worth Plastic Park, a pharma park and 200 Jan Aushadhi centres were among the projects offered to the state.

Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Ananth Kumar while addressing a press conference to highlight the “achievements” of the two-year rule of Narendra Modi government, said the Centre was ready to set up the establishments in Kerala if the government identifies adequate land. He also said the BJP-led NDA at the Centre has an advice of three ‘Cs’ to give to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

Kumar added, to the new Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, Centre’s advice is three ‘C’s i.e. say no to corruption, say no to criminal politics and say yes to cooperation between the government of Kerala and the Centre on the development of the state and for the well-being of people.

Kumar stated that what the country requires at the present time is ‘cooperative federalism’ and what people want is economic growth, social security and quality of life, he added, the only ‘mantra’ for this is good governance. Corruption, crime and good governance will not go together. The two-year rule of Modi government had assured good governance sans corruption and crime, he said.

Union Minister said during the previous UPA rule, there were all scams from 2G and Commonwealth to AgustaWestland. He added the Modi government would be with the people of Kerala in “distress” as well as in “development”.
