Kochi: Senior Congress leader KV Thomas showered praises on Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan while addressing the LDF election convention at Thrikkakara here on Thursday.
“Strong public leaders like Pinarayi Vijayan can lead the state to progress by overcoming all challenges,” said KV Thomas.
He also extended support to the SilverLine project as a solution for the traffic issues in the state.
“ We need all high-speed transportation facilities. Projects like Nedumbassery airport, Vyppin-Ernakulam bridges, Jawaharlal Nehru stadium and Kochi Metro also faced strong protests. It’s quite natural. Only strong leaders can overcome such challenges. I’m sure Pinarayi Vijayan will be successful to overcome it,” he added.
At the same time, he remembered late MLA PT Thomas at the event.
He also pointed out that PT was against bringing family members like son or wife to power after the demise of a politician.
" Why do people forget his words?," asked KV Thomas.
