K Muraleedharan slams govt over Palarivattom flyover row
Kozhikode: MP K Muraleedharan criticised the state government over the Palarivattom flyover row. He alleged that state government is dragging UDF into the scam. MP was addressing the media here on Tuesday after inaugurating a dharna staged by Chamber of Commerce against the government’s negligence towards Karipur airport.
“The LDF led government used to claim Palarivattom flyover as their contribution. But when cracks developed on the flyover they thought of UDF’s role in the flyover construction. We are ready to face any probe on the alleged scam,” said K Muraleedharan.
“Minister’s office is not responsible for the construction. So the people who are preaching on ethics in work must continue it after one and half years when the flyover is completely reconstructed”, he added.
Muraleedharan also demanded action against the corrupted officials.
Addressing the dharna, Muraleedharan demanded to immediately complete the land acquisition formalities for the development of Karipur airport.
“I can’t understand the reason for the delay in land acquisition. If this situation continues, we will lose Karipur airport. Government should take a stand in favour of the airport. Union minister has also asserted that all issues related to the airport will be solved once the land acquisition is done,” pointed out K Muraleedharan.
