Leopards do change spots

All sectors in Kerala open to investment: Achuthanandan

Making a strong pitch for investments in his financially crunched state, Kerala Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan said his government would welcome all investors - private as well as foreign - in every sector, provided the proposals were ‘not against the interests of the state’.

‘We welcome all investments - both private and foreign. But their conditions should not be against the interests of the state and welfare of its people,’ Achuthanandan told IANS in an interview here.

All sectors, including traditional industries, are open for private investment,’ he said.

Asked why Kerala comrades could not follow their West Bengal counterparts, who have recently changed their mode of protests from blockading roads and disrupting work, Achuthanandan said, ‘We will have to think about it.’
