No plans to contest elections: GTech

Kochi: Group of Technology Companies (GTech), the industry body of information technology (IT) companies in Kerala, dismissed reports of joining any alternative political movements or contesting the forthcoming civic body elections. GTech was reacting to media reports that it is part of a platform preparing to contest elections upset over the stand of political parties on the privatisation of Thiruvananthapuram airport and various other issues related to the development of the city.
"While we are distressed that the ruling and the opposition parties came together in the assembly to pass a resolution opposing the leasing of the airport, we do not want to directly engage in politics. We continue to work with the governments and fellow trade bodies for the development of the state and its citizens", said Sunil Jose, chairman of GTech.
"Nonetheless, we reiterate our position that it is important that we have a well connected and world-class airport at the capital. This can be achieved through private participation", he added.
