Due to COVID protocols, public campaign and rallies are not allowed for local body election.

 

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has alleged that Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) and BJP are in  mutual understanding to help each other in local body elections.

Addressing a virtual rally on Saturday in the run-up to local body election in the state, Vijayan said:

“Left Democratic Front (LDF) will not ally with communal forces for few votes. There is an alliance between BJP and UDF in secret to help each other in local body elections”, he said.

“UDF has tied up with Jamaat-e-Islami. Muslim league will understand the setback from the Muslim community for this alliance after the election. Even a single leader of Congress, Muslim league or UDF did not speak against BJP", he added.

The Chief Minister said that there are few states where Congress governments are in power but BJP can topple them any time.

"The Central government is taking a policy of destroying the federal system of our nation. Congress party is in power in a few states. Any time BJP can overthrow Congress governments. We have witnessed it in Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka," Vijayan said.

The Chief Minister alleged that the Central government is using national investigative agencies to sabotage the government in Kerala.

"Left party is in power in Kerala only. They cannot sabotage the government by purchasing MLAs. So the Central government is using national investigative agencies to sabotage the government in Kerala. Congress and Muslim League are supporting the BJ”, he added.

Due to COVID protocols, public campaign and rallies are not allowed for local body election. Sunday is the final day of the election campaign for the first phase of the election.

Polling will take place on 8, 10 and 14 December.
