Not yet time to rest on our laurels: Paloli

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Local Self-Government Institutions (LSGIs) in Kerala might have made several gains and set examples in diverse fields, but it is not yet time for the State to rest on its laurels or forget that there is a lot of catching up to do, said Local Self-Government Minister Paloli Mohammed Kutty.

On the criticism that the accounts of even local self-government institutions that have performed admirably are in disarray, Mr. Mohammed Kutty says that it has been one of his departments persistent concern over the last four years. �I would say that we have been 80 per cent successful in our efforts. Out of 1,223 local bodies, only 8 have not finalised last years accounts, he points out and adds, �I am sure things will improve further in the days to come.�
