LDF convenor met Javadekar with Kerala CM’s knowledge: Congress

Congress state in-charge M M Hassan demanded LDF convenor Jayarajan’s resignation alleging him of being the mastermind behind the "CPM-BJP deal."

ALAPPUZHA/KOCHI/THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Senior Congress leaders K C Venugopal and V D Satheesan have alleged that CPM leader E P Jayarajan held discussions with BJP’s Kerala in-charge Prakash Javadekar with the knowledge of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

“Jayarajan admitted he met Javadekar. The CM’s response revealed a clear-cut deal between CPM and BJP. Pinarayi is justifying Jayarajan. It shows he knew about the meeting. As per the deal, CPM will help BJP in 2-3 seats. In return, the Union government will drop the Lavalin case and the Karuvannur scam case. The CPM and the BJP have joined hands to destroy the Congress,” said Congress general secretary and Alappuzha UDF candidate K C Venugopal.

Leader of Opposition V D Satheesan said in Kochi that Pinarayi was “disowning Jayarajan as the links between CPM and BJP have been exposed.”

Congress state in-charge M M Hassan demanded Jayarajan’s resignation from the post of LDF convener. “He was the mastermind behind the CPM-BJP deal,” he said.
