Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala BJP president K Surendran on Saturday criticized the Pinarayi Vijayan government for the intelligence bureau (IB) report concerning Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the state.
Surendran alleged that two organizations associated with the Left Front in Kerala were identified as posing threat to PM Modi, along with terror groups. He questioned whether the chief minister was willing to expel those organizations from the Front and also demanded that the chief minister reveal how those two names appeared in the report.
Surendran also made a veiled reference to the arrival of Peoples Democratic Party chairman and accused in the 2008 Bengaluru blast case, Abdul Nasser Madani, to Kerala, alleging that the state government was protecting him. However, it is important to note that the Supreme Court has permitted Madani to stay in Kerala under the supervision of the Karnataka Police until July 8, and he will be responsible for covering the expenses of the Karnataka Police during his stay in Kerala.
