Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on sunday accused the BJP-ruled Centre of trying to destroy the federal structure and creating an economic crisis in the southern state through its various policies and blamed the Congress-led UDF of being a silent spectator to the same. Alleging neglect and discrimination on the part of the central government towards kerala, Vijayan said it was getting this treatment despite achieving unprecedented gains in tax collection, domestic production and infrastructure development.

Speaking during the Nava kerala Sadas at the Uduma constituency here in the evening, the cm said that the Union government through its various policies was ”financially strangulating the Left government” since it came into power back in 2016. ”At the same time, the congress and the UDF opposition led by it were being a mute spectator to this discrimination. Why this hesitancy in speaking out against the actions of the Centre which are against the state and its people?” he asked while addressing a gathering of thousands.

People turned in huge numbers to raise their complaints and grievances before the cm and his cabinet colleagues as part of the Nava kerala Sadas outreach program. During his speech, Vijayan highlighted the various projects, like national highway expansion and IGL gas pipeline implementation, which he claimed had not taken off during the earlier UDF regime and were made possible only after the Left government came to power.

Earlier in the day also, at a press conference, the cm blamed the Centre for the economic crisis in the state and accused the UDF opposition of using the same as an opportunity to destroy the Left government’s popularity. Vijayan said the outreach program intends to show people these “hidden realities” and also address their problems.
