Digital Desk, Thiruvananthapuram. Social activist and National Alliance of People’s Movement (NAPM) chief Medha Patkar on Sunday opposed the Left Democratic Front (LDF) government’s dream project K-Rail project in Kerala. He said this while talking to the media in Kochi.
He said that in view of the serious environmental situation after frequent floods and landslides in the State, a proper study is needed to be done on its impact on the environment and society. The social worker said that there should be a proper study on social impact and it was not proper in the state to sanction the project without such studies.
Patkar launched a scathing attack on Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, saying it was not good for Left unity against communalism, which the CPM is promoting. The proposed Rs 1.25 lakh crore project is a semi-high speed rail corridor running from Thiruvananthapuram to Kasaragod and the state government and supporters of the project claim that the high-speed train will cover a distance of over 600 km in four hours.
Strong opposition to the project is already being opposed by the opposition Congress and BJP, and even at CPM district conventions, which are vehemently criticizing the project. The party’s Kannur district secretary M.V. Jayarajan said those opposing the Silver Line project would be opposed.
