Oppn shows intolerance towards Govt instead of cooperating in COVID-19 prevention: EP Jayarajan
Thiruvananthapuram: Minister for Industries and Sports EP Jayarajan denied the allegations raised by Opposition regarding appointment of consultancies.
He said that many consultancies were appointed during the tenure of UDF government also. Instead of preventing COVID-19, UDF is trying to destroy the developmental activities, the Minister alleged while addressing the media here.
The UDF is annoyed over the development of Kerala. The government has created an image among the public through many public welfare projects. UDF is intolerant towards this and is trying to get an opportunity to tarnish the government, Jayarajan stated.
The gold smuggling case surfaced at this point. The only party connected with the case is BJP. The accused in the smuggling case has contacts with BJP. Now BJP and Congress are joining forces to oppose the LDF. NIA is investigating the case in the right way. Why do BJP and Congress fear it, he asked.
Congress is not aiming at COVID prevention. Even police officers were infected with COVID due to their protests and strikes. UDF is trying to do everything possible to ensure disease transmission in the state, Jayarajan alleged.
