Kerala: CPM shocked before assembly elections, 92 members joined BJP

At least 92 members of the CPM joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday in the presence of Union ministers Prahlad Joshi and V. Muralitharan. Muralitharan is the lone member of Kerala in the Union Cabinet. Among those who joined BJP include former Kovalam Panchayat president and local leader M. Prabhakaran and five women. Membership was handed over to these new members by Joshi who was present in the state capital to inaugurate the election campaign office of the state BJP. All of them are members of Panavila and Nellikunu local committees in Kovalam assembly constituency.

Mani C Kappen, the expelled MLA of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in Kerala on Monday, announced the formation of a new party - Nationalist Congress - Kerala. Kappen will be the party's president and Babu Karthikeyan will be its executive chairman. The NCP's Kerala unit, currently a constituent of the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF), was split earlier this month. Kappen announced his decision to leave the LDAF. On 14 February, he joined the Congress-led United Democratic Front at a rally in his constituency Pala under the leadership of Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithalan.

Kappen says that I did not get justice from the Left Democratic Front and Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan asked to contest from Kuttadu assembly seat. We will ask the UDF to contest three seats in the upcoming assembly elections. The NCP has been an ally of the Left parties in Kerala for years and has two MLAs, including a Minister of State, while the third seat is now vacant after the death of their MLA in 2019. The NCP got a boost when Kappen won the Pala assembly seat in the by-elections in 2019. Here KM Mani was an MLA since 1967 and did not lose a single assembly election. This seat was vacant after his death.

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

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?
