Kerala is ready to hold elections for its 140-member Assembly less than a month from now. Just before the elections there originated a slug-fest between the ruling LDF, its primary opposition UDF and the BJP. At the end of BJP’s ‘Vijaya Yatra’ on Sunday, The Union Home Minister Amit Shah discussed all the charges levelled against the Centre by Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan.
Chief Minister Vijayan was accused by the central investigative agencies of indulging in ‘campaigning’ for the BJP and Congress. He had even blamed by the Customs Department for taking advantage of the mental turmoil’.
Amit Shah stated that while the chief minister is claiming that the central agencies are acting as political tools, then he would like to ask a few questions. “I want to ask the CM if the Dollar/gold scam main accused was working in his office or not?” Amit Shah attacked Pinarayi Vijayan.
The Union Home Minister charged directly to Swapna Suresh, one of the keys involved in the Kerala gold smuggling case. He was arrested for allegedly facilitating the smuggling of gold from the UAE into Kerala.
Amit Shah further stated that Vijayan should tell if the CMO put pressure when illegal gold was obtained by the Customs at the airport or not. “ED and Customs officers were attacked. Has he conducted a detailed investigation in this case?” he added.
