Palakkad: CPI(M) veteran VS Achuthanandan on Tuesday launched the LDF campaign for the upcoming Kerala Assembly polls with a scathing attack on UDF and BJP-BDJS combine.
93-year-old Achuthanandan addressed a massive Left Democratic Front convention at Malampuzha in the district, from where he is expected to win for a record fourth successive term.
Kerala goes to polls on May 16 to elect 140 members to the 14th Kerala legislative Assembly.
Launching an attack on the ruling UDF led by Oommen Chandy, Achuthanandan alleged that the number of cases pending against the Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and his ministers in Lokayukta proves of deep corruption in the government.
Not stopping here, Achuthanandan claimed that the current government has allotted a total of 2,820 acres of land to corporates and companions, thus pointing towards the controversial land assignment orders issued by the state government in March, just before the poll announcements were made.
The former Chief Minister also accused the BJP-led NDA of spreading communalism in the state.
