CMs financial advisor Gita Gopinath meets Thomas Issac

Thiruvananthapuram: Noted economist Gita Gopinath, whose appointment as financial advisor to the Chief Minister had stirred a controversy in the Left-ruled state, today met Finance Minister Thomas Issac and held discussions.

The minister's office said it was a "courtesy call".

This is the first visit of Gopinath to Kerala after her appointment as the financial advisor to the Chief Minister.

She is also expected to meet the Chief Minister during her stay in Kerala.

"I will be speaking to the Chief Minister and to other senior people in the government. We are all working on the main issues in Kerala and hopefully there will be some good solutions," Gopinath told reporters here.

The Harvard Professor had earlier clarified that she would not relocate to the state for her new assignment which will be confined to giving advice to the Chief Minister.

She had also stated that her role would be confined to providing advice to the Chief Minister and to make connections for the various departments.

"It is then up to the Chief Minister to consider my advice, and up to the relevant departments to continue conversations with the various sector experts. Given this advisory nature of the appointment and my location, I do not anticipate frequent interactions with the media to explain government policies or my opinion on those," she had said in an email statement earlier.
