Thiruvananthapuram: A resolution expressing solidarity with the people of Lakshadweep who are allegedly protesting against the recent actions of the island administrator has been passed unanimously in the Kerala Legislative Assembly on Monday.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, who moved the resolution in this regard, said there is an attempt to destroy the indigenous lifestyle and ecosystem in the Lakshadweep islands.
Alleging that there is a plan to implement 'saffron agendas' through the backdoor, he said even coconut trees were painted with saffron colour as part of the agenda.
The interest of the Lakshadweep people has been compromised for Corporate companies in the name of developments.
Opposition leader VD Satheesan also extended support to the resolution and sought the removal of the administrator.
This was the first resolution passed against the Centre's policies by the Pinarayi Government which came to power for a second consecutive term following the thumbing victory in the April 6 Assembly elections in Kerala.
Earlier, the House also paid tributes to former Kerala Governor R L Bhatia, ministers K R Gowriamma, R Balakrishna Pillai, former minister and Kerala Congress leader K J Chacko, former deputy speakers C A Kurian, KM Hamsakunju and member B Raghavan.(UNI)
