Thiruvananthapuram: Ahead of his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow, Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said he was confident of a good working relationship with the Centre regardless of political differences to take forward the development of the state.
“Though it will be a courtesy call, development issues relating to the state will broadly figure during the meeting,” Chandy, whose current tenure as chief minister has two more year to go, told PTI.
Asked what are the key issues of development to be taken up with the Centre, Chandy, who did not attend the installation of the new government, said “let us see what their priorities are and that would also be factored in while working out the state's projects.”
Chandy had earlier made it clear that the UDF government was not for any confrontation with the new government at the Centre even though they have political differences.
Looking back to the last three years, Chandy expressed satisfaction about the performance of the government based on the plank ‘Development and Care,' which gave equal emphasis to infrastructure development and welfare of the people, especially the less privileged.
