Addressing a meeting after a public reception for the party's 'Jan Raksha Yatra' (People's Protection March) here last night, he said, "Frequent increase in prices of petroleum products is causing inconvenience to people. The central government decided to cut down its taxes and advised the states to do the same. But the Kerala government stuck to its stand that there was no question of reducing the taxes."
He further alleged that the CPI(M) that calls itself a party of the poor had no concern for them.
He made a frontal attack, saying "the leadership of the ruling party here will have to answer the political murders of BJP workers in the state".
BJP's Kerala unit president Kummanam Rajasekharan, who led the 15-day yatra, and other leaders also spoke.
