'Election is not held to milk society', MP AM Ariff ridicules UDF candidate Aritha Babu
Alappuzha: Aroor MP A M Ariff has ridiculed UDF candidate in Kayamkulam Aritha Babu. Ariff said that UDF should remember that this election is held to the assembly and not to milk society.
The controversial remark was made during a women’s meet organised in Kayamkulam as part of the election campaign for LDF candidate U Prathibha.
UDF was mentioning the poor background of the candidate as their campaign strategy. Reacting to this, A M Ariff asked if the election in Kerala is held to discuss the liabilities.
Following this, UDF turned this into a weapon against the LDF. UDF is widely circulating the remark made by Ariff in cyber platforms.
Earlier, a statement by LDF convener A Vijayaraghavan against Alathur MP Ramya Haridas during the Lok Sabha election had ended up in huge controversy.
