CM alleges BJP-Congress deal behind rejection of nomination papers
Kollam: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan alleged an alliance between BJP and Congress in the assembly polls. He said the nomination papers of BJP candidates in three constituencies were rejected due to the foul play between the two parties.
“The opposition leader had stated that he would not reject votes of BJP followers. This confirms that Congress and BP entered into a deal. This secret partnership between the two parties resulted in the nomination rejection of BJP candidates in three sitting seats of LDF,” criticized the CM.
“LDF is facing the assembly election without hiding anything. We don’t need the support of any communal forces to win polls. LDF won’t compromise with communalism. We can’t change our stance for winning extra four votes,” declared Pinarayi Vijayan.
He also alleged that planned attempts are being made to surrender Kerala before BJP.
“BJP is foraying into polls with matters including the Citizenship Amendment Act. While launching the election manifesto for Assam polls, BJP national chief hinted at plans to implement the Citizenship Amendment Act and renew the National Register of Citizens (NRC). In West Bengal also, BJP declared that they will implement CAA in the first assembly meet itself. Sangh Parivar also announced that they will continue with the Citizenship Amendment Act,” said Pinarayi Vijayan.
He pointed out that the LDF government has already declared that CAA will not be implemented in Kerala. He questioned the failure of Congress-ruled states in declaring such a stance.
The Chief Minister also condemned the opposition’s remark on the free kit in April.
“The opposition wants to attack the LDF by leaving the public in trouble. The government has decided to issue free kit in April observing Vishu and Easter festivals,” he added.
