Kerala CM Slams Yogi Adityanath Over His Remarks On Medical Facilities:- Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan slammed out at his Uttar Pradesh counterpart, Yogi Adityanath, for his remarks on the law and order situation and medical facilities in the State.
He said it “amused” him that the UP chief minister found time for Kerala despite “problems” in his own land.
“It really amuses me that you (Yogi Adityanath) found time for Kerala, despite the fact that a large number of problems exist in UP as per newspaper reports,” Vijayan said in a facebook post late last night.
He also expressed confidence that Adityanath’s visit to Kerala would rejuvenate him for facing problems back in UP.
“But dear I am sure this break, (beautiful and happy trip) would help you to get rejuvenated for facing various issues in UP,” he said.
Vijayan, reacting to Adityanath’s comments on infant mortality rate (IMR) in Kerala, said “The Infant Mortality Rate in Kerala is 10 while the national average is 34 and in Uttar Pradesh, it is 43.” Moreover, he thanked the UP chief minister for letting the country know about IMR figures.
Vijayan also asked Yogi to abstain from speaking on the basis of “false and fake” information provided by the state BJP leaders. The UP CM had alleged that medical facilities in Kerala were “inadequate.” Yogi Adityanath was in Kannur on Wednesday to take part in the BJP’s ‘Jana Raksh Yatra’, The Left Party was also accused by him for promoting violence in the State.
“There is no scope for political violence in a democracy but unfortunately Kerala, God’s own land, is witnessing politically sponsored violence,” Adityanath had said.
The two-week long Jana Raksh Yatra, has been organized to highlight the alleged attacks on BJP-RSS cadres by the ruling CPI(M). The yatra was led by BJP state unit president Kummanam Rajashekharan.
