Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who was in Kerala before the state assembly elections, visited a group of Public Service Commission rank holders, who were performing outside the state secretariat, in an unexpected change of schedule.
Mr. Gandhi attacked the Left government in Kerala during a rally in Thiruvananthapuram, claiming that jobs were available only to CPI-M workers in the state.
“I want to tell you what is happening in the country and the state. I want to talk not only to Congress workers, but to everyone. Students who are educated but protesting in front of the legislature and thinking that they are Why not. ” Able to get a job. I want to talk to the fishermen as to why they leave for the sea, they read in the newspapers that the government is working to destroy their livelihood ”, he said.
He later visited the protesting rank holders and said, “The youth of Kerala are wondering why they cannot get a job. This is a dynamic situation for the brilliant youth. The Left Front government said they would make Kerala perfect. My question Is – perfect for whom? Perfect for the people of Kerala or for your party? If they are one of them, then carry your flag, everything is for them. “
The Congress-led opposition front has also been protesting in support of rank holders outside the state secretariat.
Amid opposition from rank holders, the state government has extended all rank lists – which were to expire between 3 February and 2 August – to 4 August. But the protesters did not refuse and are demanding talks with the state government. The rank list of civil police officers, which ended in June 2020, has not been carried forward.
The state government has claimed that the selection of rank lists against vacancies has been done five times by the Public Service Commission and not all can be given jobs. Protests continue outside the Secretariat.
“Every day I fight the policies of BJP, RSS. I take any step, BJP attacks me. Right now, they are watching this speech and thinking what we say to attack them. Can. I don’t understand one thing. ” Why is a person in the Chief Minister’s office being softened in cases against the Left Government. “, Rahul Gandhi said, referring to links to gold smuggling cases, involving diplomatic channels.
M Shivshankar, the suspended former principal secretary to the Chief Minister of Kerala, was arrested for having links with the accused in the gold smuggling case. He has come out on bail after nearly 100 days in jail, with the prosecution either not being able to present evidence against him or failing to present the charge sheet within 60 days. Pinarayi Vijayan accused a witch hunt by central investigative agencies in Kerala to appease his political bosses.
Rahul Gandhi also targeted the BJP in the context of the Central Agricultural Laws and calling the farmers “terrorists”.
Meanwhile, opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala has launched an aggressive campaign against the Left government over a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with an American company alleging that they were allowing foreign vessels to catch deep-sea fish.
The Kerala Chief Minister vehemently denied the allegations, saying that the state’s policy did not allow foreign vessels to catch deep-sea fishing. A government order was later issued asking for a memorandum of understanding between a government body and an American company regarding the cancellation of the construction of deep-sea trollers.
“KSINC, a wholly state-owned company, has proceeded to do so without consulting the government or even notifying the government before signing a memorandum of understanding with EMCC. Between KSINC and EMCC The signing of the MoU has led to the spread of misinformation that the Kerala government has decided. The government order said that granting of trawlers of corporates for deep sea fishing.
