New Delhi, Sep 25 (IANS) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will visit Kerala Nov 1 to inaugurate the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the state's formation day, Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan said Monday.

'The prime minister has also agreed to lay the foundation stone for the new terminal of the international airport in Thiruvananthapuram,' Achuthanandan, who met Manmohan Singh here, told reporters.

The state is organising 50-day-long celebrations to mark half a century of Kerala's birth. The event will begin on the formation day of Kerala, Nov 1, and continue till Dec 20.

The central government has given the nod for the Rs.2.58-billion modernisation project for the Thiruvananthapuram International Airport.

The terminal, being constructed by the Airports Authority of India, is expected to give a big momentum to the development of the capital city, the IT sector and tourism industry.

According to the chief minister, the prime minister assured him that the central government would consider the state's other demands such as inclusion of crisis hit Alappuzha and Idukki districts in its agriculture package.

Manmohan Singh also said that New Delhi was looking into the state's demand to reconsider denial of security clearance to the Rs.43.60 billion Vizhinjam port project.

Security clearance was denied because a consortium of two Chinese firms and an Indian construction company had won the tender.
