CPM is selling votes, alleges V Muraleedharan
Thiruvananthapuram: When the political parties are in a tight race to woo votes for the assembly elections, union minister for state V Muraleedharan has raised a sharp criticism against the CPM. He slammed that CPM alleging they are selling votes. He was reacting to the Chief Minister’s allegation on the Co-Le-B alliance in Kerala.
Muraleedharan alleged that CPM leaders are ready to even sell the party.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan alleged the presence of the Co-Le-B alliance in the state after NDA candidate Suresh Gopi appealed to the voters to cast vote for UDF in Thalassery and Guruvayur.
Criticising CPM over this, Muraleedharan stated that BJP president K Surendran’s statement should be considered over such matters.
“In the last assembly polls in Tamil Nadu, CPM received money from DMK to contest in alliance with the latter. The donation documents of CPM will prove this fact. Kamal Hassan himself revealed this matter. CPM is a party which forms political alliance after receiving payments,” slammed Muraleedharan.
Dismissing the allegations against BJP, the union minister also stated that opponents are creating allegations against BJP in view of votes.
“Pinarayi Vijayan should show some decency by not making such cheap comments. Only CPM and the Chief Minister will be affected by raising such allegations,” he added.
He also responded to Jose K Mani’s controversial statement on love jihad.
“I think Jose K Mani has expressed the anxiety of the Christian community over love jihad. The Christian community in Kerala is not getting justice from both fronts in Kerala. CPM and Congress should take action to resolve the crisis,” said Muraleedharan.
At the same time, he also responded over P Sainath’s statement that central agencies are fighting for BJP in poll-bound states.
“Those who write such articles are revealing their opinion. I consider his statement in such a manner. We are living in a democratic country. Everyone holds the right to express their opinion,” added the union minister.
