Ramesh Chennithala responds to Pinarayi Vijayan’s allegation of vote-buying in the Assembly elections. Chennithala said that what was widespread in the state was the CPI (M) BJP vote-buying and that it was the UDF that closed the BJP account and blocked the BJP’s progress.
The Chief Minister is accusing the UDF of hiding vote-buying. The allegations of the Chief Minister are baseless. Chennithala said that he rejects all that with the contempt he deserves.
In 69 seats, the BJP voted for the CPI (M). This is evident in the figures. Nemom, Palakkad, wafer constituencies where the BJP Jayasadhyata
seen. Here the UDF candidates blocked the BJP’s progress. In these constituencies, the CPI (M) lost votes. Chennithala alleged that BJP candidates received them.
Yesterday, Pinarayi Vijayan alleged that the UDF and the BJP had engaged in massive vote-trading in the Assembly elections. Pinarayi said that there was a bigger vote-buying than seen in 90 constituencies.
