Kozhikode | Political atmosphere in Kerala has undergone a sea change and people now want to reject Congress-led UDF and CPI(M)-led LDF, Union Minister of Chemicals and Fertilisers U Ananth Kumar said today.
The way law and order is being maintained in the state, particularly in Perumbavoor is to be condemned, said Kumar, adding that the political atmosphere in the state, ruled by the UDF and LDF in turns had undergone a sea change.
People want to reject them. In the brutal rape and murder of a woman in Perumbavoor, police are still finding it difficult to nab the culprits, which is a question mark over the law and order situation here, Kumar said.
Kerala has a tremendous potential in terms of human resources. In cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Bengaluru healthcare is managed by the Keralites with great aplomb. But in their own state, the successive governments failed to utilise the resource, he claimed.
The BJP leader said the Left front has secretly become a Congress ‘B-team’ in Kerala whereas the scenario is very much open in West Bengal. Both the Congress and left parties are together. They are hand in glove in hiding charges of corruption against each other, Kumar alleged.
The UDF as well as LDF were talking mostly about the BJP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, NDA and Vellapally Natesan, during the last two months, he said. Despite Kerala being the most potential state with high literacy and human development index, no industrial development taking place and agriculture growth shows a negative trend, the Minister said.
