By Express News ServiceTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Expressing dissatisfaction over the slow pace of International Multi-purpose Deepwater Seaport project at Vizhinjam, the assembly committee on public sector undertaking will recommend government intervention to set things straight.
It would suggest the chief minister to hold a high level meeting with the Adani Group to review the work.
The committee visited the project site on Thursday and discussed the issues with the Adani Vizhinjam Port Private Limited, concessionaire of the project.

Adani Vizhinjam Port Private limited had commenced the construction on December 5, 2015, but failed to meet the deadline of phase 1 of December 3, 2019.
