The Left government in Kerala is preparing to launch the fourth edition of its 100-day programme from July 15 to October 22, aiming to complete various developmental projects within this period.

This decision was made during a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, according to a statement from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) on Wednesday.

Once the programme concludes, details on the progress of these projects will be posted on the government’s website. Since coming to power on May 20, 2021, this administration has already implemented three such 100-day programmes.

During the third edition, 1,157 out of the 1,295 planned projects were completed, significantly impacting the state’s social, infrastructure, and employment sectors.

In other decisions, the cabinet agreed to transfer 23 cents of land in Vettiyar village, Alappuzha district, to the Union Ministry of Defence for an Ex-Servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS) Polyclinic.

This move, aimed at providing medical care to ex-servicemen and fulfilling a social responsibility, was also confirmed by the CMO.

Cinema tourism

The Tourism Department in Kerala has sanctioned Rs 1.23 crore under the ‘Cinema Tourism’ initiative for the facelift of a bridge and its surroundings at Vellayani near here, the locale of some memorable scenes from the cult Malayalam movie ‘Kireedam’ (1989) that catapulted actor Mohanlal to superstardom. 

The bridge, which has been rechristened as ‘Kireedam Bridge’, is located at a scenic spot with lush green paddy fields around it.

Sensing its potential as a tourist destination, Kerala Tourism has included the bridge in its new scheme ‘Cinema Tourism’, which aims to showcase locales across the state that turned into memorable spots for the blockbuster hits shot there.

State Tourism Minister P.A. Mohamed Riyas said the bridge is the first project under the Cinema Tourism scheme that aims to convert popular locations of famed movies into attractive tourism spots.
