CPM members want to relook into Gadgil Report

Thiruvananthapuram: Several members of CPM state committee have said that Gadgil Committee report cannot be ignored.  The members raised their opinion contrary to the earlier position of the state leadership during a discussion on a document on government's functioning.

CPM was in the forefront to resist consideration of Madhav Gadgil's recommendations along with community organisations. T his is for the first time that Gadgil Report gets support in the state committee.

The argument in favour of Gadgil came during a discussion on rebuilding Kerala.   The members said that rebuilding Kerala should be harmonius with the environment.

"Gadgil Report cannot be ignored. Even Madhav Gadgil has not recommended implementation of the recommendations as such.  Gadgil had said that the report should be implemented only after a public debate."

The document presented by Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said that there is no dispute on the government's performance and generally, it has been implementing beneficial schemes.

However, steps to convey the beneficial actions of  the government to the people should be in intensified. There should be greater vigilance and  intervention in this regard. Development activities initiated by the government should be completed within the time-frame.

Kerala is in severe economic crisis. It is not receiving any aid from the Central government.  In 2018 flood either,  Kerala did not get enough aid from the Centre.  The situation is the same this time too. The state committee decided to take up the issue politically.

The state committee meeting will end on Friday.
