Responding to a question about the Fire Force’s rejection and tough stand on rejecting safety permits for buildings higher than three floors, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said that Kerala has to decide if it want to grow high like the rest of the World or down?
He added safety is paramount and there is no question about compromising on it.
Does these statements when read in entirety make sense? Is it impossible to have both safety, security and development at the same time? Is safety a luxury we have to compromise for development?
