Congress on Saturday targeted Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan over JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy’s ministership in BJP-led NDA government at the Centre and sought to know under what circumstances that the state chapter of the party is continued to be a part of the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) in Kerala.


Kumaraswamy recently took oath as Union Heavy Industries and Steel Minister. The Congress alleged that the JD(S) had joined the NDA last September but CM Vijayan and the ruling CPI (M) have been remaining silent on the matter since then.


In a hard-hitting statement, Opposition leader VD Satheesan attacked Vijayan and said only he could show double standards by allowing the state unit of the JD(S) to continue in the Left front. He alleged that Kumaraswamy became the Union minister with the “silent permission” of the Marxist party. A coalition of the LDF-NDA is ruling Kerala, he reiterated.
