Vijayan's anti-globalisation stand is laughable: Congress

Thiruvananthapuram, March 20 (TIWN) Barely a few hours after Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan attacked the globalisation and liberalisation policies of the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala on Friday said it is laughable to hear the Chief Minister make such a comment.

"We were all laughing hearing Vijayan speaking to the media on the ill-effects of globalisation and liberalisation and then claiming to be the only state in the country which is fighting it. This could well go down as the biggest joke during the election time," said Chennithala.  Earlier in the day, Vijayan said, "Today there is a 'Kerala Model' tie-up between the Congress and the BJP which is now spreading canards against the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) government. The Left has taken an alternate route for overall development which is not what these two outfits did after the Congress started with the liberalisation policies and now followed by the BJP. We have taken a different route and hence these people are spreading canards against us, but the people of Kerala have seen what has happened in the past five years under our government."
