Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday said that the public evaluates the regime based on their own experience.

“I happened to hear a claim that the 2016 LDF regime and the 2021 LDF regime that came to power were disastrous to the state. The mandate (election verdict) was based on the assessment done by the public. No one has forgotten how Kerala was before 2016. Some people need to be reminded about it,” said Vijayan.

He was addressing the gathering at the event held as a part of the LDF government’s second anniversary.

Vijayan also took the opportunity to target Congress and BJP. According to Vijayan, LDF ended the disaster called UDF in 2016 and seven years have passed. “There were no instances where lapses of the government can be pointed out,” he noted.

He cited protests organised by Congress and BJP on the anniversary day. “Both Congress and BJP have always tried to topple the projects pursued by the LDF regime,” he alleged.

Meanwhile, various programmes were organised across the state today to mark the second anniversary of the Vijayan government. LDF government also released its "progress card" detailing its achievements over the last two years.

Earlier, today CM in his tweet apparently rejected the allegations raised by its critics. The tweet also claimed compassion and social justice drive policies of the Left government that empower marginalised communities and foster equal opportunities for all. Various achievements of the government in the last two years have been listed in the colourful full-page advertisement which also claimed that the southern state has emerged as an exemplar of "people-centric progress" and a "unique model of inclusive development."

However, the opposition launched intense protests against the alleged misrule and corruption under the Left government.

Hundreds of party workers of the opposition Congress-led UDF laid siege to the state Secretariat here on the anniversary day.

The BJP also organised various protests programmes against the LDF regime.
