"He also pointed out that a comparison between the 2009 and 2014 elections showed the law and order situation now is far better than what it was in 2009."
Thiruvananthapuram, April 18 - Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala Friday criticised the CPI-M for spreading canards that the law and order situation in the state has deteriorated.

He said it was a cover up bid by the Left as it is going to suffer a defeat when the Lok Sabha election results are declared next month.

A few recent incidents of murders that took place in the past few days have now been made out as a breakdown of law and order by the CPI-M, Chennithala told reporters here.

Family issues and other personal problems have been the villain in these cases... so there is no question of a breakdown of law and order in the state, he added.

The CPI-M state secretariat had met Thursday to discuss the Lok Sabha polls. The meeting also took up the issue of murders that took place in the state in the past one week.

A resolution was passed that the state is being ruled by criminal gangs and the state government has failed to protect the life and property of people.

The CPI-M is worried that they will be wiped out in the Lok Sabha polls and hence they are trying to create a smokescreen over a non-issue and a responsible party like them should not come out with baseless facts, added Chennithala.

He also pointed out that a comparison between the 2009 and 2014 elections showed the law and order situation now is far better than what it was in 2009.

In 2009, there were more than 115 election related cases and in the just concluded polls, there were just a handful of cases. What more should we say, when facts and figures tell the tale, he said.
