Our newly elected Members of Legislative Assembly (MLA) have completed their one month of governance. There are 14 MLAs in Ernakulam district. People often claim that the media rarely showcases the voices of the elected representatives. Through this article, we have tried to do exactly that. We wanted to give them a chance to inform the public about how they plan to develop their constituencies. This is why it is surprising that many of them evaded our calls, some of them wanted a few days to think about their development plans and few even stopped responding. Among the MLAs who didn’t respond to us are Anwar Sadath (Aluva), V.K. Ibrahim Kunju (Kalamassery), V.D. Satheeshan (Paravur), S. Sarma (Vypeen), K.J. Maxy (Kochi), M. Swaraj (Thrippunithura), Hibi Eden (Ernakulam), and Anoop Jacob (Piravom).
Here are the 6 MLAs who chose to share their views.
