Thiruvananthapuram: The CPI has expressed concern over the K-Rail project as strong opposition within the party itself has become a hurdle for the ruling coalition. Despite the opposition criticising and questioning the feasibility of the project, there is also a strong concern within the party. The K-Rail project was criticized by former ministers at a state council meeting.

Meanwhile, CPI also dissmissed minister R Bindu's decision to recommend the governer to reappoint existing vice chancellor in the Kannur University. CPI state secretary Kanam Rajendran added that the minister has no right to do so.

In the state council meeting, the leaders have warned that unnecessary hurry would jeopardize the project. After the meeting, Kanam Rajendran said that the UDF's protest is aimed at sabotaging the project.

The leaders have raised doubts over the need and urgency for implementing a project that costs Rs 1 lakh crore. However, Kanam has stated that it was a project included in the manifesto of the ruling front.

The council members also suggested that it was not right to implement the project without even considering the environmental impact. Members pointed out since the project had made significant changes, there is a need for a discussion to be held before moving forward with the project.
