Kerala dollar smuggling case: Opposition leaders boycott assembly session, demand CM Vijayan’s resignation
The Opposition also demanded the resignation of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan over the Kerala dollar smuggling case.
Kerala has been witnessing a surge in the cases, with 49.85 percent of the total COVID-19 cases in the country being reported from the southern state.
The Chief Minister pointed out that Governor Arif Mohammed Khan’s recent fast against the practice of dowry was a Gandhian tactic of spreading awareness.
During the daily COVID-19 evaluation meet, Vijayan said the three-day easing of restrictions in view of Bakrid being celebrated on July 21, will end on Tuesday.
He said the endeavour of the State from the beginning was to protect as many people as possible from being infected or succumbing to the virus until the vaccine was available for all.
This is the first time that a sitting Left government is getting a second term in office. Vijayan arrived early and was seen exchanging pleasantries with his fellow treasury bench legislators.
The Indian Medical Association (IMA), Kerala unit, had on Saturday suggested that the swearing-in ceremony of the new cabinet should be held on a virtual platform in view of the unprecedented surge in COVID-19 cases.
If this turns out to be true, Vijayan will go down in the history of Kerala as the first to lead a sitting government back to office, and since the last four days, that is the only thing one has heard the Left leaders including Vijayan saying time and again.
On Tuesday morning Vijayan, while addressing the media at Alappuzha, said by now he has covered a good number of districts and from the responses the signs are ominous.
Vijayan also had a dig at the Congress-led Opposition and the Centre who is trying everything to pull down the performance of the Left government.
Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala said Vijayan is trying to spread canards by saying that the UDF has become irrelevant.
As a result, anchors of prime time debates on various channels on Sunday night said no leader of the Communist Party of India-Marxist, which heads the ruling Left Democratic Front, would be present.
The CBI on Friday not only filed a detailed report in the special court here on the Kerala government’s now controversial Life Mission housing project, but also registered a case that was filed at the Ernakulam Chief Judicial magistrate court.
The state government had on Friday approached the High Court to stay the Centre’s move to lease out the international airport.
“Vijayan should tell if a MoU for the funds from Red Crescent was signed, if so when, where and who were there. He should also say if Swapna was there,” said Chennithala.
On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed the Bhumi Pujan for Ram temple in Ayodhya, laying its first brick.
Vijayan said the stage has come that Covid is not just a health issue but it has now become a social and economic problem too.
While Vijayan participated from his official residence, the other cabinet ministers took part in the meeting from their office or residence.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said the positive cases on Friday were at 885 and the good news is that the recovery was more and touched 968 cases.
Vijayan said there were 1,078 Covid cases on Thursday in Kerala which stands as the highest in a day.
Vijayan, who created a record of sorts by shooing away the media, unlike his predecessors, made it clear that he will meet the media, when he decides and not when the media will wish.
“What we planned to do in 5 years, we could do in 4 years,” said Vijayan while addressing the media on completion of four years in office.
The case was registered, as the accused morphed the picture of Pinarayi Vijayan and circulated it on social media
“None need to worry. It’s only temporary measure,” said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan after chairing the daily Covid-19 review meeting.
