Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan meets PM Modi in Delhi

Karnataka election:-

Prime Minister Narendra Modi devoted a significant amount of time, approximately 10 days, to campaign in Karnataka, during which he organized multiple road shows. It indicates the level of determination the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had in securing victory in the election. 

The substantial effort put into campaigning by the Prime Minister demonstrates the party's urgency and desire to win. But the general public had other ideas for BJP and its candidates.

The Congress party emerged victorious in the recent elections. As per the Election Commission of India, Congress secured a total of 135 seats in the only southern state where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was in power. 

This outcome resulted in the BJP losing its position of authority in the state, as it managed to secure only 66 seats. Another significant contender, the Janata Dal-Secular (JDS), secured a total of 19 seats in the election.

The Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, emphasized the importance of Congress learning from its previous experiences. He warned that the BJP, even when in the opposition, has shown a persistent desire to seize power, as evidenced by their attempts in the past to form a government despite losing the election. 

He further reminded Congress leadership to exercise caution and avoid repeating the mistake of having Congress MLAs supporting such attempts by the BJP.

According to him, there is a widespread sentiment in the country that opposes the return of the BJP to power. He pointed out that the Congress party, which once enjoyed an absolute majority in Parliament during its previous rule, has changed. The present political landscape differs significantly from that time. 

The objective now should be to displace the BJP from power, and the Congress party should actively contribute to achieving this goal.

"The Congress needs to acknowledge the prevailing political landscape in the neighboring states of Kerala, where parties other than Congress are currently in power," he remarked.

Furthermore, he expressed his concern that if the BJP were to regain power at the national level, it would bring about catastrophic consequences for the country.

"In light of this, it is crucial to unite and consolidate the anti-BJP votes from each state. At present, commendable efforts are underway in the Country to achieve this objective. The recent election outcome in Karnataka has provided a significant impetus to such endeavors," stated Mr. Vijayan.
