Why only one? Why do people keep doing this to Thrivanathapuram? No High Court bench, Vizhinjam Port is still not of the woods and now this. Kochi is going to be the only city in Kerala which is going to get assistance to be a ‘smart city’.
Tamil Nadu, has got 12 cities approved. No, that’s not a typo. TWELVE. Even Telengana got two. Why did Kerala just get one and why was it Kochi not Thiruvanathapuram?
According to the guidelines, the Ministry of Urban Development, every state has to nominate according to how many cities they are allowed. Kerala was allowed to nominate one. The Government of Kerala choose Kochi, it beat Thriruvanathapuram (second) and Thrissur (Third). Kochi scored 90/100 in the challenge round.
