THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Centre wants the newly sworn-in CPI-M led LDF government in Kerala to "cooperate" in the area of development, said  Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Ananth Kumar while addressing reporters here on Friday.

The minister also announced a set of multi-crore development projects to the state including a Central Institute of Plastic Engineering and Technology, Rs 1,000 crore-worth Plastic Park, a pharma park and 200 Jan Aushadhi centres.

 

"We can set up a Central Institute of Plastic Engineering and Technology, which is equal to IIT, in the state. Whatever location the state government say, we are ready to set up it," he said.

The Centre is also ready to establish a 'pharma park' which will help the state to become a medical hub. “We are also ready to open 200 Jan Aushadhi Centres to provide generic medicines at lower rate,” he added.

The union minister said the Centre has an advice of three 'Cs' to give to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. “Say no to corruption, say no to criminal politics and say yes to cooperation between the government of Kerala and the Centre on the development of the state and for the well-being of people,” he said.
