AICC Secretary Madhu Goud Yaskhi said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Left Democratic Front (LDF) made up many stories about the leadership problem in Congress in Kerala.
“The BJP and the LDF put together many stories about leadership in Congress in Kerala. Rahul Gandhi is the chairman. We are all working to ensure that the UDF wins the election under his leadership,” he said at a press conference in Kochi.
He also claimed that the BJP and LDF were the two sides of the same coin.
“It is more dangerous for the people of Kerala to have LDF in government and BJP nationally to counter it. Together they will wreak havoc in Kerala. In many ways, BJP and LDF are two sides of the same coin,” said he said.
On Saturday before, Kerala’s Prime Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had claimed that there was an alliance between the Congress Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state.
“The leaders of Congress and the BJP blame a CPI M-BJP alliance for fear they won’t be able to take a polygraph test. There is a Kerala-level alliance between Congress and the BJP. This continued too,” had the choice Prime Minister claims.
Yaskhi also criticized the center, saying that “Prime Minister Modi and Amit Shah have polarized society in ways that have never been seen since the partition of India. They have nothing new to offer but to divide and sell the land.”
On the recent renaming of the Motera cricket stadium in Gujarat after the prime minister, he said: “If I extend this analogy to the country, India has also been politically turned into a Modi stadium, and there are only two endings.” it economical – Ambani and Adani. Socially they only have one end, polarization. “
He also criticized the center’s handling of the COVID-19 lockdown, saying it had resulted in the worst economic decline in 70 years.
“People have been left unemployed, factories have closed, workers have been left stranded on the streets, and we have slid to the bottom of the pyramid on poverty and hunger. But there are friends of this government who have been in the March lockdown,” said he.
This is ahead of the state assembly elections for the 140-member Kerala congregation in 14 districts, due to take place on April 6 in a single phase. The votes will be counted on May 2nd.
