Ernakulam, the business capital of Kerala is one of the fastest growing cities in India. Ernakulam has the potential to compete with the most modern cities in the world with its unique geographical specialities. The availability of rail, road, water and air facilities can make this city a model transportation hub. Efforts for an integrated transport system has already begun with the formation of UMTA. Cochin is getting a facelift with the Kochi Metro and the coming years will see a treemendous change in the infrastructure development of Cochin.
The aspirations of the people are raising the bar day by day. Five years before, when I was elected as the MLA, our challenge was roads in Pathetic conditions and sewage systems. Today we have moved from those pothole filled roads. We are now talking of integrated transport systems. Development is possible only with the contribution from the people. I would like to hear your priorities from you to create a vision document for Ente Kochi. This will be a consistent campaign to listen to the people and make them part of the nation building process. Best suggestions will be published in the website and social media for wider discussions and interactive sessons and seminars will be held with your participation. You can send your suggestions here.
