New Delhi: CPM leader Sitaram Yechury praised LDF victory in the Kerala Local Self-Government polls. The CPM politburo member took to Twitter and congratulated Kerala for giving LDF a big win in the local body elections.

“We congratulate and salute the people of Kerala for giving the Left Democratic Front in Kerala a big victory in the local body elections. LDF has won a big majority in all three tiers of the panchayats,” tweeted Yechury.

“Kerala has strongly rebuffed the negative campaign by the Congress-led UDF and the BJP of levelling baseless allegations against the LDF government and its leadership backed by sections of the rightwing media and the unscrupulous use of central agencies by the BJP at the Centre,” he added.

"The LDF has won a big majority in all three tiers of the panchayats. The LDF has also won five out of the six corporations and leading in 11 of the 14 district panchayats. The people of Kerala have recorded their approval of the performance of the LDF government. The people have appreciated the work done by the state government and the local bodies in tackling the serious floods of 2018 and the Covid pandemic," reads the statement issued by polit bureau.
