KOZHIKODE: Coming down heavily on Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for his alleged involvement in the controversial gold smuggling case, BJP leader and Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani said Pinarayi was a morally corrupt chief minister who should not even be called a leader.

The Union minister was leading an NDA roadshow organised in Elathur on Sunday, as part of the election campaign of BJP candidate T P Jayachandran. “Kerala’s leaders claim to be ignorant of a scam that was operated from the chief minister’s office (CMO). It is for the first time in the country’s history that a CMO has been accused in a smuggling case. LDF stands for corruption. It is high time that the people of Kerala realise this and take a wise decision by electing honest leaders,” the saffron party leader said.

Irani alleged that the leaders of the two fronts that alternately governed Kerala were only interested in amassing more wealth for their own family members. The BJP, she said, stands for a new India that is developed and prosperous. “Rahul Gandhi will do anything to save the Congress party in Kerala because he has failed to do so in several other parts of the country,” she alleged. She further added that the UDF, however, will not criticise or raise its voice against the LDF as they are actually partners in crime. “Kerala should reject this unholy partnership and teach them a lesson,” she said.

What about all round corruption and where is the Lokpal. 6 What about the Lynchings. 7. What about the sale of all Govt Undertakings to Crony Capitalists. 8. What about Hate Politics. 9. What about Rapes and crimes against women across the country. 10. What about Farmers suicides and deaths across the country. 11. What about all the constitutional authorities. 12 What about the Supreme Court. 13. What about the price of essential commodities and petrol and diesel. 14 The List is endless and our country is virtually on the Brink. The six years of BJP rule at the center has taken our country backwards by six decades.
