Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Thursday hit back at Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan for his remarks against senior Congress leader A K Antony.
“The comments of V S Achuthanandan against AK Antony crossed the limits. Such remarks are not suitable to the position he holds. He should show some tolerance towards political criticism,” Chandy said.
The Chief Minister reiterated that the outcome of June 27 Aruvikkara Assembly bypoll would be a referendum on the four-year rule of his government and also on the CPI-M’s violent politics.
“I won’t be surprised if the LDF is pushed to the third pace in the election,” Chandy added.
On Wednesday, leader of the Opposition V S Achuthanandan has accused A K Antony and KPCC president V.M. Sudheeran of failing to respond to the serious issues raised by him at Aruvikkara and resorting to a smear campaign against him.
