BJP blasts LDF, UDF
PNS | Idukki

The Kerala BJP on Tuesday unleashed a scathing attack against the CPI(M)-led LDF and the Congress-led UDF for their allegedly hypocritical position with regard to electoral associations with Islamist outfits like Abdul Nasser Madani’s PDP and the Popular Front of India, which was allegedly responsible for the cutting off of the right hand of a college professor.

State BJP president V Muraleedharan charged the LDF Government with freezing the investigations into the attack on the professor under CPI(M) instructions in the context of the panchayat elections. The Marxists wanted the probe to be stopped in order to ensure the votes of the Islamists, he said in Thodupuzha.

“Many of those arrested in the case of attack on the professor are activists of the DYFI (CPI-M’s youth wing) in daylight and Popular Front workers by night,” Muraleedharan said. The Congress and the CPI(M) were keeping the same policy of appeasement as far as their approaches to the Popular Front were concerned, he added.

The BJP would not have tie-up with any other political party in the local bodies elections, he said. The party’s local units had been given the authority to make minor adjustments considering regional issues, he said.

The local leadership would decide on the election plan in areas where party candidates were not in fray, Muraleedharan said. Dismissing chances of vote-trade, a charge the BJP had been facing after each election for the past some years, he said that strict instructions had been given to lower units in this regard.
