Pinarayi Vijayan, the Chief Minister of Kerala and the Left Parliamentarians of Kerala staged a protest outside the Rail Bhavan today against the Centre’s decision to drop the proposal to establish a railway coach factory in Palakkad district of Central Kerala.
Blaming the Modi government for punishing the people of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan claimed that it was because the state was being ruled by the Left Democratic Front the central government overlooked Kerala.
“The coaches, which are currently used in Kerala, are worn-out and creaking. The Centre has decided that a coach factory is not needed at Palakkad, but it seems they have agreed to open one in Haryana,” Vijayan said.
Vijayan added that Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal had recently said that his ministry is ready to open a coach factory in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, that too new ones, but not in Kerala. This is solely because Kerala is ruled by the Left Democratic Front and the other two states are ruled by the BJP.
“Is this how a democratic country should function? Doesn’t this amount to punishing the people of Kerala? Does this suit the federal system of the country? It shows that the Centre doesn’t approve of democratic manners,” the chief minister said.
