Kerala govt to make 'Loka Kerala Sabha' a permanent feature

Press Trust of India  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

The plans to make 'Loka Sabha' (LKS), an ambitious initiative to connect Malayalis across the world with their home state, a permanent feature, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said here today.

After a discussion with editors of various media houses in connection with the maiden LKS being organised here next month, Vijayan said Keralite MPS, MLAs, and Malayali representatives in various countries would be part of the platform.

"The Loka Sabha will be made a permanent feature... As many as 351 people will be part of the maiden LKS," Vijayan said in a post after the meeting.

According to official sources, the maiden LKS is scheduled to be held at the Legislative Assembly complex here on January 12 and 13.

The state has envisaged the LKS as a common platform for the cultural, socio-political and economic integration of non-resident Keralites with the state, they said.

The 351-member LKS would comprise MPs and MLAs from the state, non-resident Keralites with Indian citizenship nominated by the state government, and select members of the expatriate returnee community, sources added.
