Thiruvananthapuram: Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Friday said that the Loka Kerala Sabha expects not just investments of the expatriates but also their involvement and ideas. His comment came as a covert reply to the opposition who slammed the programme as a splurge.

The state is implementing long term policy decisions with the cooperation of the expatriates. Loka Kerala Sabha could find solutions to the problems faced by the Non-residential Keralites, CM said in a statement.

The Sabha ensured the participation of the expats in the development of the state. We need a comprehensive migration law. The state is indebted to the NRKs. A proper data collection is necessary to rehabilitate the returning Malayalis. The Union government did nothing to accommodate the 17 lakh Malayalis returned to the state during the Covid period, Pinarayi accused.

CM skipped the event on Friday as well due to ill-health. Minister P Rajeev presented the policy document in the meeting.
