Slamming Rahul Gandhi’s plan to contest from Wayanad in Kerala, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said his candidacy would send a wrong message.
Rahul’s candidature would create an impression at the national level that the fight was between the CPM and Congress, Pinarayi said. “Congress is facing BJP on a national level and it is facing CPM in Kerala. Therefore, Congress aims to defeat CPM even if it loses to BJP. What message is being conveyed by this,” he asked.
"When secular forces are fighting against BJP unitedly, the candidature of Rahul in Wayanad will give a wrong message," the Chief Minister said.
