60 years have passed since Kerala State was formed on 1st November 1956. 60 years is nothing in the life span of a state. But during these years, it has achieved many firsts, like in literacy, health and social commitments to the people. At the same time, there are weakness that have got to be removed.
The first Ministry under Com.EMS Namboodiripad was one of the best governments Kerala has seen with its progressive legislations and correct direction. Let us hope that the present LDF Government under Com.Pinarayi Vijayan will continue the forward march started by the first Communist ministry in 1957.
