Kerala became its own country of fundamentalists, Nirmala Sitharaman targeted the CPI-M government

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday targeted the CPI (M) -led government of Kerala. He alleged that during its five-year reign, the state has become "its own country of fundamentalists", which is known as "God's own country". The minister also targeted Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for his budget and questioned the role of Kerala Infrastructure Investment Fund Board in budget making.

He criticized the alleged killing of an RSS worker in Alappuzha by SDPI activists last week. He alleged that violence is increasing in the Left ruled state. The Union Minister said, "I cry when I have to say that RSS pracharak Nandu Krishna was killed. Is this God's own country here? "

'Abuse of fundamentalists will not be questioned'

Sitharaman said these things while inaugurating a meeting organized by Kerala BJP President K Surendran on "Vijay Yatra". He alleged that the mistreatment of fundamentalists in Kerala will not be questioned as the CPI-M has an alliance with the SDPI through the back door.

'Why is Rahul avoiding going to those places'

At the same time, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan targeted Rahul Gandhi on Saturday. He questioned the Congress' silence in states like Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Puducherry and the Union Territory when they came to power. Vijayan also wanted to know why Rahul is not going to those states where the Congress is directly facing the BJP.

Vijayan questioned, "Rahul Gandhi is a prominent leader of the Congress Party. Is he going to the state where the Congress is directly competing with the BJP? What role did he play in Goa, Manipur, Bihar, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and more recently in Puducherry? Why is he silent about these states? Why is Congress national leader Rahul Gandhi refraining from going to places where his party is in direct competition with the BJP?
