INTERVIEW | Despite all brouhaha, Kerala government stays focused on welfare projects: Vijayaraghavan
In an interview to TNIE, Vijayaraghavan who is also the LDF convener, said senior Congress leader A K Antony has lost his credibility and he should first try to save his own party.
CPM acting state secretary A Vijayaraghavan on Monday said ‘Love jihad’ is non-existent and that is a creation of the Sangh Parivar.
UDF is unleashing violence in the state as a result of a well-planned conspiracy to make it appear that the law and order is in peril, CPM acting state secretary A Vijayaraghavan said on Friday.
After the statement triggered a controversy, the CPM secretary changed his tone.
The party feels the visual media has been after its secretary in-charge hoping to cash in on such sudden remarks, a senior leader said.
On Tuesday, Vijayaraghavan had come out with a serious allegation that the previous UDF Government had taken bribe from job aspirants and accommodated them.
Even as his remarks against the Muslim League kicked up a row, CPM state secretary in-charge A Vijayaraghavan continued his tirade against the League.
He further said the CPM has always opposed BJP which propounds Hindutva ideology, and hence the Congress cannot portray CPM as a communal party.
The CPM has decided to reinduct controversial CPM Kalamassery area secretary Sakeer Hussain into the party.
The LDF observed that the front was able to make major gains compared to the previous Lok Sabha polls when it got only one seat.
Politburo member M A Baby also said that now there’s no reason to discuss Raveendran appearing before the ED.
In a scathing attack on IUML, CPM state secretary A Vijayaraghavan said on Saturday that the League has become a party which justifies corruption and corrupt MLAs.
The names of a few senior leaders from Kannur including MV Govindan and EP Jayarajan were doing the rounds for the post in case Kodiyeri chose to step down.
Many consider his controversial remark against Ramya Haridas was the single major factor behind her sterling win from Alathur in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
On Friday, Chandy termed the revelations as a posthumous honour for Mani and demanded that the CPM should apologise to Mani and his family.
