Chief Minister Oommen Chandy is convening an all-party meeting on Monday to arrive at a consensus on implementation of the recommendations of the K. Kasturirangan committee on the Western Ghats.

The Chief Minister said in an official release here on Wednesday that decisions would be taken on the basis of the opinions emerging at the meeting. The general approach of the government is to implement the recommendations in a manner that would ensure protection of the environment and, at the same time, avoid difficulties to the people.

Mr. Chandy said the Centre had sought the opinions of State governments on the Kasturirangan report. Kerala had submitted its preliminary opinion. Its final stand would be communicated after the all-party meeting. There is no cause for concern among the people in this regard. It would be possible to adopt a united stand to avoid practical difficulties.

He noted that though the Kasturirangan panel report was more favourable to Kerala than the Gadgil panel report, it still had many proposals and recommendations opposed by the State. The State would continue with its effort to convince the Centre and the Supreme Court of the difficulties in implementing them.
