VS hinders development: Brittas

john-brittasKozhikode: Former Managing Director of Malayalam Communications in his meeting with US political counsellor and officials stated that V S Achuthananthan hinders development in the state. Brittas who was sharply critical of former Chief Minister Achuthanandan said,  “In all the other states including West Bengal, the Chief Ministers champion the cause of economic development and private investment while the party machinery would advise caution. Here, it is the other way round:  the party is for investment and economic development while it is the Chief Minister who wants to go slow.”

Achuthanandan has a good team of ministers including Finance Minister Thomas Isaac and Education Minister M.A. Baby but the Chief Minister is such a loner and a born factionalist that he cannot lead the team and produce results, he added.

Brittas also seemed to have been confident that Pinarayi Vijayan would emerge the unchallenged leader in the February 11-14 State Conference of the CPIM. Brittas added that the constant infighting within the CPI(M) and the Left Democratic Front it leads has rendered the government ineffective and eroded the popular goodwill that brought them to power with a massive majority in 2006.

According to the US officials Brittas reflected a growing sentiment that the Chief Minister and his obscurantist allies had set back Kerala’s chances to reform its economy and improve the investment climate.
