A media critic on situation of anonymity mentioned Vijayan feels that he can stay silent and take all for a trip and none ought to overlook that just some days again the Kerala High Court had slammed the way in which this project’s land was being acquired and it has now stayed laying of alignment stones for the project.
“Vijayan thinks now that he has left on Saturday for US for his treatment and will return only on 29th of this month, all the opposition to the project will die down when he returns. Just look Vijayan’s strategy of late, is to keep away from the media and when issues concerned to the leaking Mullaperiyar dam, re-appointment of Kannur University vice-chancellor, Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan relinquishing the post of Chancellor and a few others surfaced, he has ducked the media. If he thinks he will be able to go ahead like this, then he is mistaken as he will have to give answers, especially with the Kerala High Court keeping a tab on all controversial issues,” mentioned the critic.
