Smart City is it smart only talking smart city Ommen chandy is doing any "VIKASANAM" ???Smart city
Hello Frnz, First of all iam not against the smartcity project, Iam very happy to see that smart city
project coming to cochin(Thanks to Kunjali who took the initial steps . what happend to Italian fashion village ??)
But after seeing few things i have some doubts let me explain here.
Our great(???) chief minister ,Oommen chandy is always talking about smarcity going uae and coming back. but there are lot of indian(Infosys,tcs,wipro,satyam) and multinational(nokia,cisco,toyota ...) companies are looking for places to start there new operations.Infosys already invested lot in bangalore,mysore and mangalore(mangalore software export is higher than total keralas software export) and in other states like orissa,tamilnadu,bengal and andhra. I know that infosys has plans in cochin and tvm but no more talks after that and there is no discussion from the govt side.If you see the earning of TCS and Infosys it always higher than the dubai internet city, and they are not the space providers(like dubai internet city) but the employment providers. why our govt is not taking any necessary steps to talk to all this companies and ask them to invest in Kerala.Our near Mangalore and Mysore are very small cities comapred calicut,cochin and tvm, but they have attracted more investors,even coimbatore also attracting more investors.I know that infopark cochin is full and other phases of infopark also booked fully.
Most of them must have read new plans of infosys,microsoft and wipro in karnataka and andhra and the govt allotted acres from 50 to 1500 in different parts. But our ommen chandy talks somany thing and does nothing and not even taken any necessary steps to get this companies in Kerala.Another thing is there are lot of companies in Kerala, including Keltron and other elctronic and textile companies in Kerala. Every one can see present position of Keltron. And for the textile industry also he has not taken any solid steps,as the Textile business india is overcoming china. My frinds has written lot of plans of investment in Kerala end ecplain the figure , but the govt has taken any steps to making it reality ???? ... no no efforts from govt side..so Mr Ommenchandy is doing lot of "vikasanam",Yes he talks about vikasanam and but does nothing.At least make some trips to bangalore and meet the companies and explain the situtation Insetad of always going to duabai.
