no one can fool the people of Kerala Three bypolls and a parliamentary election were held while the Opposition was raising those charges… If those allegations were true we would not have won a single seat We won 12 seats in the Lok Sabha elections People have understood that the allegations have no basis… We had given them a face-saving opportunity that there could be a judicial inquiry but they did not even become a party to it… The Opposition did not let the issue be discussed in the assembly because they did not want to face the reply I would give They would give adjournment notices but disrupt the House and walk out without letting it be debated WATCH |Oommen Chandy On Allegations Against Him But doesn’t the Congress use the same tactic in the Lok Sabha The Congress protested when the government was not ready for a debate Here we were ready for a debate but the Opposition did not want it Have the allegations including of sexual harassment affected the way you work Not at all I am a public servant who works with the people It has been my strength and weakness Anyone could come to me with a complaint anyone could take a selfie or a photo with me There could be some mischievous people too If I started worrying about possible mischievous elements among the public I would not be able to function I would take any decision that I thought right I am aware some decisions could go wrong but if I realised it was a mistake I would immediately correct it… But if I started worrying about mistakes I would not be an effective and efficient administrator Share This Article Related Article Was there any moment when you felt you should quit In fact I felt the opposite Had there been an element of truth in those allegations I believed I should not continue in the post for even a minute If someone accused me of behaving differently from my style I would feel guilty If someone told me I used harsh words against a person I would be worried I am a person who feels tormented if I am convinced I committed a mistake But if someone raised baseless allegations to drive me out of my position or humiliate me I would take it as a challenge If the Opposition had demanded my resignation simply on moral grounds I would have considered it In this case if I had stepped down it would have been an injustice to the truth Did your party back you during the crisis Not just the party the UDF and my cabinet colleagues backed me strongly It has been my biggest strength In the last five years none of the discussions in the UDF or in the cabinet came out Not that we did not have differences; we sorted out all those differences in a democratic way and did not let it become public My coalition partners and fellow ministers were extraordinarily supportive That’s the reason this government with a majority of just two MLAs could complete five years without any crisis If you come back to power will you retain the same team My position is for the tenure of this government I have no idea about the next term First it is up to the people to elect us then the elected MLAs and the Congress high command will take a decision on the leadership You have been in politics since the 1950s How do you see the changes in Kerala politics and the BJP’s emergence Standards in politics have touched a nadir It has come down to a level that one would do anything to win power There is huge difference between 1970 when I became an MLA for the first time and now Manifestos had lot of importance but these days nobody looks at them All MLAs could carry manifestos and the debates in the assembly were on the basis of that The importance that used to be given to a party’s policies and programmes is no longer there Grabbing power is the only motive The LDF slogan is “Everything will be set right if the LDF comes to power” If you look at the five-year LDF rule earlier you will get a picture of how they would rule the state They were on a demolition mission They destroyed farmland they demolished everything in Moonnar saying it was government land If it was government land we could have taken it over you did not need to demolish the buildings Now the government has been asked to give compensation and has appealed in the Supreme Court When they say everything will be all right I would like to know what are the things they would set right We the UDF have a hundred reasons to adopt this slogan: “Let this state grow with another term for UDF” Do you agree with the view that a failure of the UDF and the LDF has led to the emergence of the BJP Kerala has never stood by and will never stand by the BJP Kerala’s mindset cannot accept the ideas of the BJP Kerala has a system in line with the ideas of Sree Narayana Guru who advocated that people rise above caste and religious differences In such a scenario the BJP cannot grow But will the BJP’s presence be a boon for the Congress The Congress fights polls on its own strengths never relies on the follies of others Two major issues appear to be imminent a fall in rubber prices and the possible return of people from Gulf owing to the fall in the prices of oil How are you going to tackle these The fall in rubber prices is a major setback But the government intervened with a model scheme to ensure the small farmers got at least Rs 150 per kilo We allocated Rs 300 crore and spent the entire amount; this year it has been raised to Rs 500 crore It is a matter of pride for this government because we did not run away blaming the Centre The return of NRIs will be a serious issue The crisis in the Middle East will reflect in all sectors We will have to look into it How do you expect your government’s controversial prohibition policy to play out Kerala’s is the most practical prohibition policy Even the Bihar government is sending a team to study it Because we did not go for an absolute ban all of a sudden but in a phased manner for 10 years Obviously many people are upset I face lot of flak in public meetings But those who cannot avoid it can get it from somewhere My own people when they do not get it in their area take an auto and get it from nearby places and raise slogans against me on their way back We have time to create awareness We are trying to put pressure on them to reduce their intake WATCH THE INDIAN EXPRESS NEWS PLAY LIST More Related NewsBy: Express News

Rem Enterprises the contractor said he is also currently in talks with three rice merchants in Mandalay city Myanmar as the government attempts the first import of rice from Asia’s erstwhile rice bowl in several decades The first consignments have been brought from other Indian states thus far “We approached the Myanmar central government in Naypyidaw some weeks ago and have been directed to a handful of rice exporters in Mandalay who are currently supplying rice to China” Lalrindika said adding he is biased towards importing the mobi variety a slightly sticky variety of rice in Myanmar

country The Mizoram government had a week ago roped in Rem Rem Enterprises to ferry in 30000 quintals of rice to alleviate the expected shortage as a result of the gauge conversion work on the North-East Frontier Railways’ Lumding-Silchar route the normal route taken by Food Corporation of India to supply rice to Mizoram Tripura and south Assam’s Barak Valley Roughly 70% of the consignments are transported through this train service while the rest are trucked Given the expected rise in the cost of supplying all the rice consignments to these areas by road the Centre begun shipping in rice to Tripura using a port in Bangladesh and plans were afoot to import rice for Mizoram from Myanmar which would work out cheaper than continuing to supply rice to the remote state from Punjab and Haryana But the FCI’s tender for rice imports fell through earlier this month because the bids were higher than the corporation expected and with no new tender being released so far the Mizoram government went ahead and roped in locals to ferry the rice from Myanmar as well as other parts of India The contract is initially for 30000 quintals with a caveat that it can be extended or stopped after that after a review of the work This first 30000 quintals the contractor said would be ferried in by mid-November “We have had experience importing rice from Myanmar even in the past mostly smaller consignments from Chin State (the Myanmar province closest to Mizoram) Importing from Mandalay would not be much of a problem either The companies there will ferry it till the Zokhawthar
