Kochi: Union minister for Overseas Indian
Affairs, Vayalar Ravi, on Thursday charged that the CPI(m)-led LDF
government in Kerala was a `total failure` on all fronts.
`There was rampant corruption, law and order situation was
in shambles`, Ravi told a meet-the-press programme here.
The recent attack on forest officials and freeing of accused
in a sandalwood smuggling case in Marayoor in Idukki shows
that the law and order situation was in bad shape, he said.
On the lottery issue, he said there were problems with
regard to operation of lotteries in kerala and west bengal
both ruled by left governments. Why is the cpi(M) central
committee not probing it?, he asked.
Asked about the issue relating to former congress
spokesperson Abhishekh Singvi appearing for Megha distributors
in the lottery case in kerala high court, Ravi said corrective
action has been taken by the congress high command. Singhvi is
no longer a congerss spokesperson.
On CPI(M) state secretary, Pinarayi Vijayan, stating that
the Marxist party had no issues with the church, he said that
statement itself was a sought of confession by Vijayan.
Earlier, the Marxist party had attacked the Catholic Church
and given a clean chit to PDP and Jamaiti Islami.
He said the central projects were not being properly
implemented in the state and expressed confidence that the UDF
would win in this month`s civic polls.
