Thiruvananthapuram: Describing the Left Democratic Front Government in Kerala a 'sinking ship', KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala on Monday said V S Achuthanandan was the 'weakest' Chief Minister the state had ever seen.

Many partners, who were with the LDF, were leaving the Front as they had lost confidence in its functioning, Chennithala said.

"The LDF government is a sinking ship. Achuthanandan is the weakest Chief Minister the state had ever seen," he told reporters.

CPI-M, leading the ruling Front, was now with the rich and not with the working classes, he charged.

"The government has not done anything on the promises to scheduled castes and scheduled tribes on land issues," he said.

The government had almost sabotaged the progressive IT policy in the state, which was headed for a high growth, with the wrong measures it adopted, when compared to Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, he alleged.

The CPI-M had no consistent policy on any issue be it on education, religion or law and order. The ruling party had destroyed the higher education sector with their wrong policies, Chennithala said.

On the row between Congress and Kerala Congress(Mani) over the latter's merger move with KC-Joseph which was part of LDF till now, Chennithala said UDF had taken a collective decision not to make a public debate on the issue.

Discussions were half-way and he could not say anything more about it, he said.

About former KPCC president K Muraleedharan's moves to return to the Congress, he said the party high command had taken a decision to suspend him for six years and they would decide on the issue after the period expired.

Chennithala said though they were part of the delegation to Delhi requesting to limit the National Highway road in the state to 30 metres, the Congress was not for denying the NH to the state for the reason. Adequate compensation should be provided and rehabilitation of evacuees should be done properly, he said.

Chennithala said these things should be executed by the responsible persons in the government. "What we now see is that there is no rule in the state," he said.
