|Oommen Chandy, CM of Kerala, |
man with a mission !!
When the West is fumbling to get even one of their international airports go energy-neutral and run on solar energy, (Jacksonville Atlanta US is a 95 million annual passenger traffic airport and the largest in the world) India is proudly marching with this second international airport in Kannur in Kerala after the first one in Kochi, Kerala ( at 7 million annual passengers). To start with Kannur international airport will have a 1 MW solar plant, which over time will be extended to meet the complete energy requirements of the airport in future.
Given the propensity of Malayalees or Keralites to work abroad, Kerala being a money order economy presently, this fourth international airport in Kerala is definitely bound to be another success like Kochi international airport.
Full credit goes to the Chairman of the airport, Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, who is on a spree to change the face of Kerala from an industry-hostile economy to an industry-friendly economy in just five years. In the coming elections if he is re-elected as CM for another five years, I am sure Kerala would be transformed to from the present status of New York state in US (on economic, social and health indicators), to much better level in economic. social and health indicators.
