MK Muneer walks out of Loka Kerala Sabha

MK Muneer walks out of Loka Kerala Sabha

Outlining the concept and objective of the LKS, which would have an advisory role without the powers of a legislature, he said it would play a vital role in engineering meaningful cooperation and work toward Kerala's progressive development. The LKS will also discuss issues of NRKs, returnees and women expatriates.

The forum may become important for engagement with NRKs, especially at a time when remittances, which form nearly one third of the state's GDP, have been dropping largely owing to oil crisis in the Gulf nations, a popular destination for migrants from the state. "The Loka Kerala Sabha would mark the diversity of democracy".

The special court in Thiruvananthapuram, had in November 2013, discharged Vijayan and others of the charge of alleged corruption in awarding a contract to Canadian firm SNC-Lavalin when Vijayan was the power minister in 1996 that had allegedly caused a loss to the state exchequer.

The CM said the remittances from overseas played a vital role in the economy of the state, but major portion had remained in non-reproductive sectors. "This situation has to change", he said.

Such steps could help the state look beyond traditional ways of raising debt, often at huge interest rates and at the same time offer NRKs an attractive opportunity for investment, Isaac had said in an interview.

Chief Secretary Paul Antony, Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha P.J.Kurian, former Chief Minister V.S.Achuthanandan and businessmen Ravi Pillai, C.K.Menon and Azad Mooppen were among those spoke.

However, state BJP chief Kummanem Rajasekheran shot it down and said this was nothing but a meeting of "representatives of the CPI (M) party who have their organisations abroad".

"This can be said, as a meeting of CPI (M) well-wishers, as several respectable organisations from overseas who have been working among the Kerala diaspora, have been left out".

The Government constituted LKS as it is envisaged as a platform for the cultural, socio-political and economic integration of myriad Keralas with the home state, Mr Pinarayi Vijayan said.Asserting that the LKS will be another "Kerala Model" for the country and other states to emulate, and such forums gain significance as cultures and communities grow beyond geographical boundaries, he said Kerala's people and its culture have travelled beyond borders and to every corner of the world, fostering their assimilation and integration with the rest of the world.

"Moreover, it should be noted that a few of the selected representatives have even cases registered against them by the CBI", said Kummanam.

Two members from Melbourne were found protesting in front of the state secretariat as they claimed their "very respectable and decades-old Kerala diaspora organization was not included".
