Thiruvananthapuram : Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan struck a jesting note at Opposition’s failed attempt today in the Assembly saying, it is unclear who the no-confidence motion was really meant for, given that mistrust within UDF is rapidly on the rise. Bonds between the front’s allies are frayed and the Opposition has lost much trust in its own self, said CM.
Today’s no-confidence motion is a fallout of UDF’s own insecurities. It lacks capacity to present even a single matter credibly. The front’s own members are expressing distrust in leadership in terms of capability.
The Left govt came to power on strength of 91 seats and has 93 to its credit today. It is a pointer to increased confidence people have placed in this government. Loss of trust on people’s part is a phenomenon happening in UDF. The public has lost confidence in the front, said CM.
Congress leaders today describe one another as BJP agents. The party's condition is like where the roof lies flattened on its foundation and Congress now is akin to a family that awaits to become BJP completely. Notably, these differences and divisions come at a time when the country is faced with serious crisis, said CM.
Congress is now viewed as a party incapable of coming up with a leader. Even party seniors are reluctant to take up its leadership role. Left had forecast how Rahul contest from Kerala would translate to huge losses on the national front - a perspective that Congress chose to ignore. And, result is the spectre of infighting the party is currently saddled with.
Congress consistently fails to arrive at a consensus on any issue of national importance. Its maintained a curious quiet over central government’s agenda on Ayodhya Ram temple. Later, a few of the party veterans joined BJP chants as its playback singers. Congress today comprises of leaders who are constantly on lookout for BJP, to come by with attractive offer, said CM in reply to the House today.
