Kodiyeri ridicules Congress yatra
T’puram: CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said that the Congress party’s Jana Mahayatra is with currency note counting machine and ridiculed that it is “Maha Nidhi Samrakshana” Yatra, and not Jana Maha Yatra. Kodiyeri was speaking at the inauguration of his “Kerala Samrakshana Yatra” here on Thursday. The senior CPM leader said the LDF government has implemented the Supreme Court verdict on Sabarimala. He added that the Left Front is not concerned about the votes to be polled in this issue.
He said the party and Front take a political stand without worrying about the votes to be polled. He ridiculed the opinion poll survey report and said that in 2004, the survey had predicted 14 seats for UDF and six for LDF. However, LDF got 18 seats while UDF could satisfy with only one seat.
