Press Trust of India  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

Chief Minister today thanked Malayalees all over the world for unitedly supporting the to take on the "campaigns" by the and the to portray the state as "communal and trouble torn".

"Thanks to all good minded people who gave a fitting reply to such attacks through social media," Vijayan said in a post.


"The truth will always prevail over lies," he said.

Kerala, which was on the road to progress and pride of the country, had been portrayed as "communal and trouble torn" (kalapa bhumi) by the "and BJP", the post said.

Malayalees stood against such "ulterior efforts" of the Sangh parivar and it was a "rare experience", Vijayan said.

"When a situation arose that was being attacked, Malayalees the world over came forward to give a befitting reply saying was a land of all goodness, development and truthfulness," he said.

Following this joint intervention, the "planned campaign" by a section of sponsored media and to spread false reports failed. Their effort was to tarnish the state's achievements and destroy the country's most democratic society through a planned political campaign, he said.

Not only the Left sympathisers, but ordinary persons with no political leanings stood in support of the state, Vijayan said.

In the future also, any attacks against our state would be fought unitedly, he said, adding, there was need to set up a "think tank" to tackle such campaigns against the state.

Union Minister Arun Jaitley had recently blamed the CP (M) for the brutal killing of worker Rajesh here on July 29.

Jaitley had charged the CPI-M with using its cadres to "eliminate its political opponents and creating an environment of violence".
