The congress has not voiced for the Thiruvambady seat. The regional leadership and the Thamarasseri diocese voiced the demand on the candidate. The priests have brought to the notice some difficulties amongst them. It will be discussed with the league and a solution acceptable to all will be taken.
The response of the chief minister in the Methran lake issue is satisfactory. The scheme was there at the time of the LDF Government. Due to strong protests, they were not able to move forward with it. The then agriculture minister had opposed it. However, many in the cabinet including industries minister supported it. The project has no relevance now and so we opposed it.
