Priyanka Gandhi Accuses Centre of Inaction Against Kerala CM Over Alleged Scam Involvement

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has launched a scathing attack against Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, accusing him of continuously targeting her brother Rahul Gandhi during the recent Lok Sabha election campaign. Vadra alleged that although Vijayan's name has appeared in many scams, the Narendra Modi-led Central government has not taken any action against him.

Vadra claimed that many opposition leaders have been put behind bars by the Modi government, but there has been no action against the Kerala Chief Minister so far. "Though Vijayan's name has appeared in many scams, the Narendra Modi-led Central government has not taken any action against him," she said.

The Congress leader's statement came after Vijayan, during his election rallies, criticized Rahul Gandhi over various issues, including the Citizenship Amendment Act. The Kerala Chief Minister had also recalled 'an old name of Rahul Gandhi' to attack the Congress leader, who had earlier questioned why Vijayan was not jailed by the BJP government at the Centre, unlike two other Chief Ministers of opposition-ruled states.

Why this matters: The allegations by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra against the Central government for not taking action against the Kerala Chief Minister, despite his alleged involvement in scams, highlight the ongoing political tensions between the Congress and the ruling BJP. This development also raises questions about the impartiality of the Central government in dealing with corruption cases involving opposition leaders.

Vadra's accusations against Vijayan and the Modi government have further intensified the political battle between the Congress and the Left Democratic Front (LDF) in Kerala. As the war of words continues, it remains to be seen how this political confrontation will unfold and impact the future course of politics in the state.
