Vijayan has now sent his Chief Secretary to study about the model of good governance there. Will he go to Delhi to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and learn about good governance from him?,” said leader Satheesan to reporters.

The leader added, “This is a very weird attitude of the government. On one hand, the CPM-led opposes BJP and its policies in broad daylight and during the night-time, they are friends with the BJP. By creating a relationship between the Gujarat government and the Kerala government, the is showcasing its association with the BJP and Sangh parivaar.”

Kerala President K Sudhakaran also opposed this move taken by the CPM government in the state.

KPCC president K Sudhakaran said to reporters, “CPM’s main enemy is the Congress party and they want to destroy the Congress party. CPM has opened its way in favour of the BJP by telling that they are not ready for an alliance with Congress in any possible way. Destroying Congress’ role in Kerala is the need of BJP and CPM.”
