Kerala's LDF government on Thursday unveiled four projects under 'Nava Kerala Mission' for comprehensive development in the fields of health, education, housing and sanitation.
Inaugurating the proud projects of the LDF government, state Governor P Sathasivam said that Kerala had set a role model for other states in the country in these sectors.
The projects are: Haritha Keralam, that envisages organic farming for enhancing paddy and vegetable production; Aardram for improving quality and facilities at government hospitals and to enable treatment at a reasonable price; Life, a mission to provide housing for the homeless and bring quality of life; initiatives to make thorough changes in quality of life by providing houses and allied facilities for the homeless; and mission to preserve public education system by bringing up novel teaching methodologies were also launched at the function.
The initiatives would be undertaken by local self-governments in the state. Governor said in his speech that Kerala can be successful in these initiatives as it has already set a model in decentralisation of power.
“It is the inefficiency of the government hospitals that compel the people to approach private hospitals even if they don't have money. I hope Ardram would bring in a sea change in the state's healthcare sector," PTI report quoted Sathasivam as saying.
"Our decision to transform 1000 schools to international standards and to improve the teaching and learning programme at the high school level are expected to strengthen and modernize our primary education sector," he added.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that instead making claims on the already made achievements government is looking at further developments. Sharing the news on his official Facebook page on Thursday, he appealed to the public to be part of the project that will take Kerala forward.
