[RxPG] Thiruvananthapuram, March 1 - Kerala opposition leader Oommen Chandy Thursday lauded the achievements made by non-resident Keralites for doing development works for the state in the last 50 years of its formation.

'If you ask me what is the biggest achievement made by Kerala in the last 50 years of its formation, I have no doubt to say that it is the development works done by the Keralites, staying in the country and outside,' said Chandy while interacting with the media here Thursday to celebrate the golden jubilee of the state's first government.

'It is they who have brought laurels to the state through their hard work and dedication and we should really applaud their efforts,' added Chandy.

He said that Kerala, despite making huge progress in the field of healthcare and education in the last 50 years, has not been able to sustain it.

'It is rather sad that despite making huge strides in the education sector, we have completely failed to take the best of the growing information technology sector,' said Chandy.

Speaking on the state politics, he said there was no difference between the two rival fronts in Kerala - the ruling Left Democratic Front - and the Congress-led United Democratic Front - opposition.

'Look the Left opposed the tractor, computer, Smart City project at Kochi and now they all speak the same language as we do, so there is no difference between us and them,' said Chandy, taking a dig at the LDF.

'We are very clear, we have the same set of ideology, when we are in power or when we sit in the opposition,' he said.

Commenting on the nine-month old V.S. Achuthanandan government, Chandy said: 'They have been able to pay the salary promptly and has anything happened beyond that?'
