Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that BJP state president K. Surendran has lost his mind and is saying things according to his whims and fancies.
Pinarayi Vijayan was responding to questions regarding the BJP leader’s statement that more evidence regarding the gold smuggling case will come out if the CM’s daughter was questioned.
“He thinks about something all of a sudden and says it out loud. I am not the person to respond to such outbursts. I have more things to tell him but that cannot happen at a press conference. I am not Surendran,” said the CM.
The state president of a party is making baseless allegations. BJP must think if such a person should continue as its state chief, Pinarayi Vijayan said.
“It has come to a point where he is saying things according to his whims and fancies. In politics, there are certain etiquettes that must be followed. Is he following them? Surendran must explain on what basis he is making such allegations,” the CM demanded.
“They are spreading rumours about us and are even dragging our family members into it. But such actions will not bother us. The public is viewing this. They can understand what their motives are. Efforts to mislead will not work here,” Pindarayi Vijayan added.
The CM added that efforts are being made to tarnish the image of the LDF government which is free from corruption.
