I am not a full time supporter of congress but ,

I would love to see him ( or such personalities ) in our chief ministers chair in future , rather than in central ministry chair's . Kerala badly needs such visionary , educated , dedicated and more importantly someone who has seen the world kind of politician at the top . That would definitely change kerala's future

Tvm will then be the best capital in the country under him for sure.

( Needs supporting ministers also for sure , but not like the below ones) :)

That picture is hilarious and pathetic at the same time. The fact that the President of India was speaking in English must not have helped! :lol:

Airline officials in India for talks


SEVERAL top Bahrain Air officials have flown to India in an attempt to resolve the temporary suspension of its flights to Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

Services have been disrupted since Sunday after Indian authorities reportedly omitted the approval of the destination from the airline's winter schedule.

At least 73 passengers travelling to and from the state, one of the most popular destinations in south India, have been affected by the disruption.

"Managing director Ibrahim Al Hamer and other top officials went to India last night," said Bahrain Air chief executive officer Richard Nuttall.

"They are meeting the Indian Civil Aviation Affairs Ministry joint secretary and other top officials at 2pm Bahrain time today to sort out this problem.

"We apologise to our valued customers for the inconvenience.

"We are now giving them options to either fly to the nearest destination or get refunds.

"We are also hoping to get a positive response from the Indian authorities and finish this problem."

The GDN reported on Monday that passengers due to board the airline's flight from Bahrain only found out about the cancellation when they showed up at Bahrain International Airport.

It is now accepting claims from customers seeking refunds after it was forced to cancel flights between Bahrain and Thiruvananthapuram.

It is not the first time the Bahrain Air service to the state has been disrupted.

The airline had to suspend flights in April after its permit from the Indian Civil Aviation Affairs Ministry expired on March 24.

It resumed the service within two weeks after a Bahrain Air delegation visited India and signed a new contract with Indian aviation officials.

An airline representative earlier said passengers who had already booked tickets could get a refund, fly to Kochi and have their transport to Thiruvananthapuram provided or fly to Mumbai and take a connecting flight.

Can some forumers here seriously contact with Tharoorji to explore the possibility of IIT in the capital city as planned earlier. Perhaps he may not be aware of the earlier plans for setting up the prestigious institute here and later hijacked as usual.Those days our MP was out of the country in UN.I f we can convince our MP that will be the biggest thing he can do for our city. The plans are still in the earlier stage and even the Central govt. has not approved the project. I am not over ambitious but it is always worth trying from all possible corners especially our own MP is holding the portfolio. The link from PRD dated back in 5 years back officially declares that IIT will be at vithura.

Another
take off

The proposed IIT at Vithura
comes as a great boon to our higher
education sector. The first Indian
Institute of Technology in the State
is all set to take shape at Vithura,
nearly 40 km from Thiruvananthapuram.

Taxing trouble for Railways

The city corporation will issue a legal notice to Thiruvananthapuram central railway station for erecting and exhibiting advertisement hoardings without its permission. As per the municipal act, any ad hoarding can be put up for public exhibition in the corporation area only after paying tax to the corporation.

Deputy mayor G. Happy Kumar alleged that railways had been evading tax payment for putting up advertisements for a long time now. “As per municipal act, they should be paying advertisement tax to the corporation. We will issue a legal notice to the railway soon. Advertisement tax is one main revenue source of the corporation and we cannot turn a blind eye towards such violations,” he said.

Tax appeal committee chairman P. Shyam Kumar said that advertisements should not be kept for public display without the permission of the corporation secretary.

“This is happening without our permission. Annually we are losing lakhs of money because of such violations. The matter will be discussed in detail in the next committee meeting scheduled for next week. Notices will be issued to all violators,” said Mr Shyam Kumar.

However, Railway authorities washed their hands of the violation. Senior Divisional Commercial Manager of Railways Mr Sundar said that railway was not responsible for it. “We are liable to pay any tax imposed by the government. We have given the contract to a private agency. We will look into the matter,” the official said.

Already in rail budget, it was announced as Kollam-Tvm-Nagercoil Memu, so what extension is this?
Or is it a typo error in the report?
It means that this service may actually start operating after being "announced" in the last six or so successive rail budgets. That's what counts. It's understood that Dr Tharoor got an agreement on this during his recent meeting with the Chairman of the Railway Board.

The State Government which talks a lot about decongestant the roads has paid scant attention to introducing commuter rail services along the most high traffic commuter route in the State.

Understand your point on the pathetic situation of announced trains like MEMU & Duranto for Tvm. Good to hear Dr.Tharoor already has got a word on these from RB.

But I think there is a typo on the news report which says "train extended to Nagercoil" which is not true.. The train was initially announced in Budget as Kollam-Tvm-Nagercoil itself so there is no question of extending. Hope I Iam clear now.:)
