THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala on Wednesday favoured the proposed
constitutional amendment for extending for another ten years the
reservation accorded
to SC, ST and Anglo Indian community in Lok Sabha and state assemblies.

A resolution in this regard would be passed in the Kerala assembly
during the next session, chief minister V S Achuthanandan told
reporters here after a cabinet meeting.

The Cabinet also decided to order a vigilance probe into the alleged
irregularities in awarding contract for modernisation of public sector
Kerala Metals and Minerals Ltd during the previous Congress-led UDF

Achuthanandan said as soon as LDF government came to power, it had
recommended to the Centre to order CBI probe into the
'irregularities.' But, the Centre had not done it till now, he said.

On ASEAN pact, Achuthanandan said Congress leaders in the state should
apologize to the people of Kerala as they were "misleading" them about
the 'negative list'.

Alleging that there was no negative list as assured by the Centre,
Achuthanandan said farmers in the state were going to suffer a lot.
