SilverLine Project: Kerala CM announces 4-time compensation for land acquisition

Kannur: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan announced that the LDF government will carry out the SilverLine project and that the state government will compensate land owners four times the current market price.

CM Vijayan, who visited Kannur to open the Puthur local committee office of the CPIM, said: "The SilverLine project will be implemented by the LDF government. There are attempts to deceive the public."  He further stated that the effort is for the benefit of future generations. "From Kochi to Thiruvananthapuram, there is now only one route. However, after the SilverLine project is implemented, there will be countless trips " he said.

As compensation for the land acquisition, the CM promised to pay four times the market price. "People whose land is being acquired for the project are bound to be disappointed. However, I would like to inform you that the government will compensate you at four times the market price. Such narrow-minded politics should not be supported." he said.

For the past few days, people from all over Kerala have been demonstrating against the placement of survey stones for the SilverLine project. On March 18, the first significant demonstration took place in Madampally, Kottayam.

The 529-kilometer SilverLine railway will run from Thiruvananthapuram in the south to Kasaragod in the north, passing through 11 districts and 11 stops. The travel between two stations will take four hours, compared to the present time of 12 hours to get from one end to the other.
