Cancellation of MoU: EMCC seeks explanation

emcc


KOCHI: US-based EMCC has strongly criticized the cancellation of the MoU signed with the Kerala Shipping and Inland Navigation Corporation for the manufacture of trawlers. EMCC President Shiju M Varghese said that if the cancellation was in the name of policy, people including minister Mercykutty Amma could have said so at the beginning of the discussion.

"The government should provide a clear explanation for the termination of the contract after the commencement of proceedings and preparation of funds for the project. Discussions on the project had begun in 2019. From the Secretary to the Chief Minister, discussions were held in person. The investment was made by trusting the authorities. The government did not mention fisheries policy at that time. Was minister Mercykutty Amma unaware of the fisheries policy? The minister is lying every day. Did the Principal Secretary submit the letter to the Ministry of External Affairs without knowing the policy?" Shiju said.
