Congress attacks Kerala chief minister for remarks on SoniaDecember 18th, 2008 - 9:23 pm ICT by IANS
Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 18 (IANS) The Congress’ Kerala unit chief Ramesh Chennithala Thursday attacked Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan and Finance Minister Thomas Isaac for their remarks against party president Sonia Gandhi and said they did not need to teach her politics. “She has seen the world and knows what is happening in the different states in the country and it is because of this, she plays the anchor role in leading a government in Delhi,” Chennithala told reporters here.
“She is quite well versed in politics and these two need not teach Sonia Gandhi politics,” Chemmithala said, reacting to the critical statements of Achuthanandan and Isaac.
The two Left leaders’ remarks had come after after Gandhi lashed out at the “ineffective governance” of the Left Front in the state and its poor handling of centrally-sponsored schemes and programmes. Gandhi’s criticism came during her address at a public rally and party meet at Kochi early this week.
Achuthanandan said Gandhi’s statements reminded him of how a feudal lord criticised his subjects.
“That statement by a chief minister was really bad and we never expected it from Achuthanandan,” Chennithala added.
