- The present CPI (M) government in the state is trying to create a situation where the government will be in a debt trap; debt has almost doubled now. In the present Kerala govt, corruption is widespread and even the CM office is not untouched by corruption. Fringe elements and lawlessness are on the rise.
- Politics of violence is going on in Kerala under the patronage of the Left front government in the state. Our karyakartas are being killed. I salute them for their dedication, hard work and fighting spirit.
