Hi,The Kerala High Court Advocates’ Association on Friday registered its protest against the actions of Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan and Leader of the Opposition Oommen Chandy in meeting the Prime Minister and demanding a High Court Bench in Thiruvananthapuram.
Cheers!!!THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Law Minister M. Vijayakumar has said that all proceedings for establishing a High Court Bench in the capital are complete. All the details regarding the Bench have been handed over to the Prime Minister, he said.
The President had earlier asked for the State Governor’s recommendation. Once received, it was given to the Union Council of Ministers, who, in turn, handed it over to the Prime Minister. After going through that, the Prime Minister had given it to Union Law Minister H.R. Bharadwaj. Now, he has to prepare a proposal and return it to the Council of Ministers. He also said that Opposition Leader Oommen Chandy and the State’s representatives in the Parliament should put pressure on the Centre to establish the Bench in the State capital.
Regarding the Vizhinjam project, he said that the State Government
had no option but to approach the Supreme Court after two benches of the High Court issued two different judgments. As part of setting up a Sports Academy for Women at Chadayamangalam in Kollam district in association with the Sports Authority of India (SAI), the SAI secretary will be in Thiruvananthapuram on Saturday to discuss the same.
Cheers!!!THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Food and Civil Supplies Minister C. Divakaran will inaugurate the Heera Central, the newly-constructed apartment complex of the Heera Group at Pattom on December 22.
Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, Heera Group Managing Director A.R. Babu said that the exclusive 15-storeyed complex built on one acre of land consists of a total of 98 two and three bedroom apartments.

Bhoomi pooja of Oceanus Elite is on 22-Dec-08.Sunny diamonds opening at Pattom on 29-Dec-08.
But we all know how Shri Vayalar Ravi, central minister for NRIs, used his powers to push for Vallarpadam project in Kochi and Shri E.Ahmed pushed his pet Kozhikode airport development.It doesnt make sense to put the ball into the court of either Antony or Vayalar Ravi.Neither of them are connected with the process in their capacity as ministers and the only role they can pay is to act as a Kerala Caucus to create a pressure on the powers that be.Which I feel they are already doing.
A.K Antony has already done his bit for the vizhinjam project by sanctioning the defence ministry clearance for the project, something that was within his purview.The same cannot be said about the other ministers from kerala who cannot pitch in for the bench ,a subject outside their purview and they can only play the role of a caucus at some fora for highlighting the case.The real motivator should be the state minister for legal affairs who should go beyond politics and rally the support for the bench and get it established without much delay.Afterall the state minister hailing from trivandrum should have done that much earlier .It is all a question of oneupmanship among the political parties which is delaying the setting up of the bench.But we all know how Shri Vayalar Ravi, central minister for NRIs, used his powers to push for Vallarpadam project in Kochi and Shri E.Ahmed pushed his pet Kozhikode airport development.

Why not these central ministers from Kerala show even 10% of the same interest for the high court bench at Tvm?
