Kerala CPM splitwide open due to Amusement Park

Even though advertisements released in leading newspapers said the chief minister VS would inaugurate “one of India’s largest water theme amusement parks”, VS conveniently admitted himself to a hospital a “blood pressure complaint” on the eve of the inauguration. Of course, we who have seen VS operate do understand the root cause of his blood pressure. How can a person who has consider himself to be champion of working class be seen promoting an amusement park?

The speakers are the function also did not make any mention of the chief . However, the CPM leaders acknowledged the contributions of late chief minister E K Nayanar, who laid the foundation stone for the Rs350mn Vismaya Infotainment Centre.

The health minister Sreemathy said
entertainment was not a bourgeois concept and the proletariat also needs it.
With entry fee is Rs300 per head on working days and Rs375 on weekends, i am not sure how many of proletariat can manage to enter the amusement park. Average daily wage of a laborer is about Rs 211.

It is sheer hypocrisy that the party who was leading agitation against Coca Cola for excessive usage of ground water has started a Water theme park which would need 25,000 liters of water in an hour
