THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Narendra Modi’s maiden visit to Kerala as the country’s Prime Minister was an attempt to elevate communal polarisation among the people, CPM politburo member Pinarayi Vijayan said on Tuesday.
Pinarayi Vijayan made his opinion through his facebook post, making clear that Modi had ridiculed the people of Kerala in all respects.
“Modi tried to misinterpret and misinform history while addressing the people of Kerala.
"He was least bothered to hear about the various requests made by Kerala citing the code of conduct during Parliament session”, Vijayan said. He also pointed out that Modi should have come up with solutions to the problems being faced by the people here rather than mere policy announcements. “On the whole, the speech made by Modi was a disappointment”, Pinarayi Vijayansaid. Pinarayi Vijayan also added that Modi’s visit to Kerala was nevertheless as an ambassador of Gujarat model intolerance and communal politics.
