With the change of reign in Kerala, come new expectations. During one channel interview, someone from Ernakulam opined that Govt’s change, but our plights don’t change.
VS Achuthanandan and CPM in general with their characteristic style of opposing all things and everything, supposedly for the sake of ordinary people, needs to now realign their thinking a lot towards the modern world where SEZ (special economic zones)’s and FDI (Foreign direct investment) is norm.
It is the children of those ordinary people who aspire to get into an IT job and that’s why they should not oppose Smart city and initiatives such as smart city.
Achuthanandan should adapt to welcoming foreign firms to do business in his state and at the same time provide solace to farmers who end up resorting to suicide due to mounting financial problems as a result of poor yield.
Also, Kannur district always plunges to political violence as soon as left begins to rule. This is to be attributed to their influence in the police force. Such violence also needs to stemmed if it does develop.
It is good news that the much maligned Kunhalikutty and Murali candidates were thrown away by the enlightened Keralites. Murali has now repeated his failure. When he failed first he said “one failure is common”. It is interesting to know what he would say now?
Overall, let us hope for the best from the left.
