Real fight between UDF and BJP: Chandytext_fields
Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Oommen Chandy today said the real fight in some constituencies in the state for May 16 polls is between Congress-led UDF and BJP candidates.
“In constituencies like Manjeswarm and Kasargod, where BJP is strong, the fight is between UDF and BJP and CPI-M-led LDF will finish third in these segments,” he told an election meeting in Kuttanad in Alappuzha district.
BJP State President Kummanom Rajasekharan reacted to Chandy’s remark saying that his remark showed BJP's strength in the state has been recognised.
Significantly, Chandy had too made a similar remark during the campaign for the Aruvikkara election.
Chandy also said refuted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement that those parties which were in power in Kerala for the last 60 years had looted the state, saying a surge was witnessed in development projects under the UDF rule in the last five years and referred to Vizhinjam port and Kochi Metro Rail Project.
"Only to open an account in the assembly polls in Kerala, Modi has come out with such a blatant lie", Chandy said in his facebook post.
People would not allow the BJP to open its account as secularism and its values were "lifeline" for them, he said.
"Development agenda of BJP is only a mask to cover up their real agenda - communal poison", he alleged, adding, the party wanted to create misunderstanding between communities and make gains.
