Aranmula Project by KGS Group is facing numerous opposition from various parties and legislatures in Kerala but Kerala CM asserted that Kerala Govt will go ahead with the project .Referring to the complaints that the airport project would adversely affect the environment and ecology of the area, Chandy said ‘environment degradation had already taken place’.

The government had taken a 10 per cent stake in the Rs 2,000 crore project prmoted by Chennai-based KGS Group at Aranmula in Pathanamthitta District, about 125 km from here.

The project was proposed and sanctioned during previous LDF rule and ‘now they are opposing it’, Chandy said to a question during cabinet briefing. “What is the point in saying now that they have made a mistake by approving the project”? he said adding ‘who will answer to the paddy fields already filled up for the project”?

Recently, a group of people from different walks of life, including 72 legislators, some of them from Congress-led UDF, submitted a mass petition to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for withdrawal of the central clearances given to the airport.
