Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that some people are trying to tarnish the government’s achievements through unethical means. He alleged that some people were trying to destroy efforts to bring prosperity to the state.
Pinarayi Vijayan was responding to allegations over the Life Mission project after inaugurating the Konni Medical College through video conferencing.
“Many people, who never even hoped to live in their own house, now stay inside their own homes. Over 2,26,000 such houses have been completed already. Was this part of corruption? It’s clear to see how each of these houses has been completed in various places. This has become an achievement of the state. The remaining houses are being completed. Some people want to tarnish these achievements and they are choosing unethical means to do it,” the CM said.
The CM asked if it was the right thing to connect Life Mission to an issue which was not connected with the project. “These people are trying to mislead the people. But the public will not judge based on a news report,” he said.
Pinarayi Vijayan also responded to the controversies regarding coronavirus prevention.
“When people returned to Kerala from areas where the pandemic was severe, it naturally increased virus spread. We are trying to prevent the mortality rate from going up. We have been able to keep it in check. In that aspect, our little state is amongst the top in the world,” he said.
But some people want to put an end to the things that make people happy. They are trying to sabotage the situation through other campaigns, the CM added.
