Thiruvananthapuram: State BJP chief Kummanom Rajasekharan on Wednesday questioned CPI(M)-led LDF government’s decision to send two Christian ministers to Vatican City to take part in the canonisation of Mother Teresa.
State Finance Minister T M Thomas Issac and Water Resources Minster Mathew T Thomas are planning to join the Indian delegation visiting Vatican City to take part in the celebrations.
Hitting out the government over its plan, Rajasekharan said the LDF government led by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had lost its secular character.
"LDF government's only achievement after 100 days in office is occurrence of 300 incidents of political violence in which CPI(M) activists are involved," he said.
Nearly 1,000 CPI(M) activists are accused in cases of political violence, he added.
Rajasekharan also claimed there is stagnation in in all sectors, including industry and agriculture in the state.
Taking potshots at LDF's election slogan "If LDF comes, everything will be made all right" he said, "There was nothing in sight to indicate that something concrete would happen in the state in the coming days".
Government was only trying to create a row to divert people's attention from crucial issues like failure to check spurt in prices of essential commodities and increase in instances of political violence.
