Kottayam: The violence unleashed by BJP in Tripura against the opposition forced CPM to align with Congress, said Kerala chief minister and the politburo member of the communist party, Pinarayi Vijayan. He was reacting to the ‘kushti-dosti’ comment of prime minister Narendra Modi on the opposition alliance in Tripura.

Lashing out at the Congress-CPM alliance, Modi on Saturday said that the parties are in 'kushti' in Kerala and have done 'dosti' in Tripura.

While speaking at the inauguration of the area committee office of CPM at Vazhoor in Kottayam, Pinarayi said, “I hope Modi’s memory is just fine. The CPM has come a long way in Tripura. We faced the atrocities of the Congress when they were in power at the centre. They tried their best to get rid of CPM. But we survived that. BJP’s actions are forcing us to join hands with Congress now.”

CM said the prime minister’s words tell that he is supporting the violence of BJP in Tripura. A prime minister should not support such anti-democratic activities in a state. People have realised that another chance for the BJP will devastate the country,” he added.

Pinarayi also slammed the Congress. The grand old party has become a “recruiting agency” for the BJP. It never tried to end communalism, he criticised.
