Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan criticizes the BJP-led NDA government for its “vengeful attitude” towards the Left government and the slashing of Kerala’s borrowing limit by the Centre.
Vijayan calls out Congress for not criticizing BJP’s anti-Kerala policies
During an address at the Non-Gazetted Officers (NGO) Union conference, Vijayan expresses disappointment with the Opposition Congress in Kerala for not speaking out against the Centre despite the state facing issues due to BJP’s policies.
Reduction in borrowing limit seen as political vendetta
Vijayan views the reduction in Kerala’s borrowing limit as a result of the Union government’s political vendetta. Normally, the state can borrow 3.5% of the GDP, but the Centre’s actions are hindering Kerala’s development plans.
Allegations of BJP’s lack of assistance during natural disasters
The Kerala CM accuses the BJP of refusing to provide assistance to Kerala during back-to-back natural disasters, including floods, monsoons, the COVID pandemic, and earlier events like Ockhi and Nipah. Despite these challenges, Kerala has shown resilience and achievements in various sectors.
Overall, Vijayan argues that the Centre should provide more funds to Kerala in recognition of the state’s achievements and contributions.
