BJP RS MP slams LDF govt

Press Trust of India  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

A MP today hit out at the CPI-M-led government, alleging that the and order situation in the state had failed with 18 political killings being reported since it came to power.

"This kind of a large number of political killings in a small state like reminds me of the brutal killings of innocent Indian citizens by Pakistani militants in J&K," Rajeev Chandrasekhar, MP, said in a statement here.


"The failing and order and failing economy within nine months of the new coming to power has proved that the left coalition is inefficient in its governance and disappointing in performance in all sectors," Chandrasekhar, Vice Chairman of NDA, said.

It is imperative for any elected to ensure and order and safety of its citizens, including security of women, he said.

He also slammed chief minister for his reported statement that there was no conspiracy in the alleged abduction and molestation of an actress, recently.

He said it was 'disturbing' to note that the police had arrested 2258 criminals in a week from the state, with Kannur topping the list with 397 from Kannur district alone.

"How can this government, which wanted to get 1850 criminals released from jails ensure safety of its citizens?," he asked.

It was only due to the 'bold step' taken by Governor P Sathasivam, by dening sanction, this plan was thwarted, he said.

The plight of common man had worsened in the state due to spiralling prices of all essential commodities, he added.
