Pinarayi’s Wrath (Contd)
Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan is furious again. His dream plan—the Rs 30,000 crore Life Mission project to build houses for the homeless—is delayed and CEO Adeela Abdullah has gone on a month-long leave. Pinarayi had issued several warnings to initiate tenders, but the CM suspects one IAS officer is holding up things by sending useless queries and spreading misinformation in the media. Pinarayi has told the chief secretary he won’t tolerate such behaviour. CMO insiders say he’s planning a surgical strike on the babus.
