Yogi Adityanath's remarks against Kerala are unacceptable: Pinarayi Vijayan

Chief Minister said that the Uttar Pradesh CM's comments didn't suit to the position of a yogi.

MALAPPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Friday lashed out at BJP and RSS for the derogatory comments made by their leaders against Kerala. Referring to the comments by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Mr Vijayan said that Adityanath has violated discipline as the head of state government and as a yogi by making unacceptable remarks. "He insulted the people of Kerala. We are following the federal system in which the chief minister of a state is obliged to abstain from making derogatory remarks against the people of another state," he said. Mr Vijayan was speaking at an election rally at Kunnumpuram in AR Nagar panchayat on Friday which was held as part of LDF candidate P. P. Basheer's election campaign for the byelection in Vengara assembly constituency.

He further added that the Uttar Pradesh CM's comments didn't suit to the position of a yogi. "We know that yogis usually abstain from certain activities. But I have heard that this yogi has gone against the normally practiced discipline of a yogi," he said. Mr Vijayan also lashed out at IUML saying the party was scared of fighting the communal forces. "They have made it clear that Muslim League has limitations in fighting fascism and communalism. They should make it to the public that of whom they are afraid," he said. The Chief Minister addressed three panchayath-level rallies in Kunnumpuran, Parappur and Othukkungal respectively in Vengara as part of the LDF election campaign.
