National Highway widening: Kerala Transport Minister flays Centre

KOCHI: Kerala Minister for Transport Jose Thettayil said here on Monday that the Union government and the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) were creating confusion in the minds of the people through frequent news items on the widening of National Highway 47 while the State was yet to get a formal response from New Delhi to an all-party memorandum on the issue.

The Minister said nearly three months ago an-all party decision to seek restriction of National Highway widening work to 30 metres was forwarded to the Union government. Under these circumstances, it was unfortunate that news items on National Highway widening frequently appeared in newspapers, the Minister said at the Ernakulam Press Club on Monday
