Smart City project:Pleading the Court to Lift the BAN on signing Smart City Project with DIC sign now

Dear Friends,



This is very important for those who work outside kerala, missing their family and striving hard for their living. For those who really think that our state should come up like other states

Now, please read, please take some time to read this completely: This petiton is forwarded to a very strong group.



As you are aware, the Terms of Agreement with Dubai

Internetcity were finalised in February 2006 and on

March 1, the Cabinet (Council of Ministers) approved

the final agreement. The DIC team was supposed to come

and sign the Agreement on 5th of March 2006.



Two hours after the announcement of this news, the

election commission declared elections in the State.

Then there was a ban on signing the agreement.



Legal experts say that since the Smart City project

was declared long back and the MoU was signed as early

as on 9th Sept 2005, the signing of the Agreement was

only a routine process and it can not influence the

voting pattern. Implementation of an ongoing process

can not be stopped by the Election Commission (EC)



The pay revision within the Government (which was

approved in the same session of the Cabinet) was also

initially stopped by the EC but when the Kerala Land

revenue Staff Association filed a petition in the High

Court, the High Court Directed the EC to lift the ban.

Copy of the judgement is available. In a similar

manner, if some strong group or association takes up

this issue with the court, the court will give

direction to the EC to lift the ban. We have very

strong chance of winning, the legal experts say.



If the ban is lifted, DIC is ready to come and sign

and invest AED 2000 Million and the project will take

off immediately.



The present indication is that VS Achuthanandan, who

has been always opposing the project, is likely to

come to power and he will certainly revisit the

conditions of the already finalized Agreement and will

not agree to include Infopark as part of the project.

In such a case, DIC will abandon the project and go.



Already DIC has signed up with Malta.Hyderabad is also

trying to catch up, inspired by the failure of Kerala.





As you are aware, Smart City is a massive project with

an investment of Rs. 2600 crores. This is the largest

foreign investment proposal which ever came to Kerala.

If our State fails to get this project, Kerala will

remain as a backward state for ever. Having taken the

project to a final stage, it is very disappointing

that EC is holding this even under a situation where

it is outside its powers. The code of conduct of EC

does not contain stoppage of projects already

declared. EC can prevent only politicians gaining

mileage by announcing fresh proposals. Even when the

pay revision, which directly influences the voting

pattern is cleared by the EC, this massive project is

held up. We have to work against this.



Only a like minded group who are affected by lack of

progress in the State can move the court. If the team

who formed the strong opinion through

petitiononline.com can be energised quickly, we have

some hope.Everyone, Please respond and please do Sign this petition. Your valuable support is very much required to lift the ban on signing up with DIC.Please Remember,Hyderabad is also

trying to catch up, inspired by the failure of Kerala.:(



After signing the petion, please pass on this mail to everyone quick, let us join hands



Cheers 'n Thanks
