Central intelligence agencies were informed of a plot to disrupt the Vizhinjam port project. After that, the Vizhinjam Samara Samiti (agitation committee local )’s “chief” and his wife’s bank account information were investigated. Investigators discovered that money from abroad totaling Rs. 11 crores had entered one account. The case was clearly the work of urban Naxals, as was to be expected.
According to the reports of News 18 Kerala, these sums are said to have been utilized to destroy the initiative. The Latin Catholic Church is said to have started the “agitation” by inciting the local fishermen, and it is their alleged use of these monies that have drawn outlaws from far and wide. Goons have barricaded raw material trucks, broken into the area, and were most recently seen dragging police barricades and throwing them into the Arabian Sea.
Several weeks ago, contractor Adani filed a case with the Kerala high court when the anticipated losses reached Rs. 100 crores. The communist administration was mandated by the court to expel the protesters or summon the national armed forces. The Kerala government took neither action and as a result, the damages are now $150 crores and growing.
The Vizhinjam strike is thought to have been orchestrated by the Chinese lobby, which governs the Colombo port of Sri Lanka. The entrance of visitors to the protest location is being watched by central agencies, who are also keeping an eye on what is being preached and photographing suspects. The Home Ministry is treating the protests seriously since they are in the interest of the country.
The Chinese group gives money to Colombo’s churches. The money is subsequently shipped to Dubai. The Latin Archdiocese’s faithful then transport the money and deliver it to the commanding officers of the Latin Church agitation committee.
The Thiruvananthapuram Latin Catholic Church’s campaign Elisa, a volunteer from the Sisters Hospitallers, a Catholic group, was present in front of the Secretariat. The Trivandrum Social Service Society (TSSS), an FCRA NGO that receives funding from international contributions, was their front when they arrived. The leading priests of the Latin church are in charge of running it.
Sisters Hospitallers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus conduct business as a dubious conversion facility that preys on frail and mentally ill women.
In the meantime, government agencies kept an eye on Joseph Vijayan and Aleyamma Vijayan’s bank transactions. Anthony Raju, the divisive Kerala transport minister, has an older brother named Joseph Vijayan, also known as AJ Vijayan. The intelligence bureau discovered that since 2017, foreign contributions have come into the account. There are early signs of a violation of the Foreign Exchange Act (FCNRA).
In the name of Sakhi, an NGO with its main office in Vanchiyur Convent Road, Thiruvananthapuram, sizable sums were transferred. Sakhi was founded by Aleyamma, who also holds the position of secretary at the moment. Sakhi was given money, ostensibly for the empowerment of women, but some of it was used for anti-national activities. Another organization being watched is Coastal Watch, which is run by Joseph in Kerala.
The central authorities have learned that special “training” seminars were set up before July 20 in order to deceive the fishing community. At that point, the ‘agitation’ really got going. For more than 100 days, no progress has been made on the site’s construction. These anti-nationals had a number of requests at first, but now they say they won’t leave until the entire project is scrapped!
The former Thiruvananthapuram Latin Catholic archbishop Maria Soosa Pakiam was being coerced into joining a hunger strike in front of the secretariat through a covert operation. In February 2022, Pakiam unofficially retired owing to failing health. Later, Pope Francis formally accepted his resignation and appointed Thomas Netto, another priest, as the next archbishop of Trivandrum.
Pakiam and Netto took part in a day-long “relay” hunger strike at the Vizhinjam port entry at the beginning of September. Other priests from nearby regions joined them, including Christudas, Eugene Pereira, and Freddy Solomon. Suhaib Moulavi of Thiruvananthapuram inaugurated the event suspiciously, raising some questions. After the Popular Front of India’s senior terrorists were apprehended, a furious Moulavi urged the Islamic community to band together and take on the government, especially the federal government.
More importantly, a cabinet subcommittee undertook the fourth round of negotiations with the Samara Samiti and the Latin church authority, but those talks ended in failure. Transport Minister Raju and Samara Samiti Convenor Fr. served as the committee’s leaders. The Latin church was represented by Theodosius D’Cruz. It defies logic to think that Raju was honestly working to represent Kerala while his brother Joseph was doing the opposite.
Videos of a Latin Catholic priest speaking on stage at the protest site surfaced in late September. He claimed that after hearing about their protests, the ruler of Dubai sent a courier bearing a HUGE contribution. Saju Roldon-led criminal preachers had allegedly threatened to set fire to the Vizhinjam police station if the protesters were taken into custody. Joseph tried his best in 2013 to postpone the project even more.
Since the project’s construction began, coastal erosion has occurred on the northern side (Poonthura, Valiyathura, and Shanghumugham), and sea accretion has occurred on the southern side (Poovar, Adimalathura). This is typically regarded as collateral damage when establishing such a massive port, common sense informs us. On the basis of these forecasts, the original agreement was reached, and the Kerala state government consented to provide compensation to the victims who resided along these beaches.
The National Fishworkers Forum’s secretary, Joseph, contacted the National Green Tribunal (NGT) to contest the organization’s prior environmental clearance. The panel agreed with the argument and mandated coast monitoring. Additionally, it designated an impartial group to oversee compliance with each requirement set forth in the Environmental clearance and CRZ clearance provided by the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoEF).
Some foreign nations, such as Sri Lanka and China, do not support Vizhinjam Port. Despite having been given the all-clear by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in 2011, actual construction didn’t start until 2015. 90 percent of the Bharatiya transshipment freight is now thought to be handled by the Chinese-owned Hambantota port in Sri Lanka. Each year, Bharat loses 2,000 crores of rupees in this way.
