Left threat to review support meant to trade BJP votes: Cong
Kochi, Apr 26 (UNI) AICC secretary Tom Vadakkan today played down Left threats to review support to the UPA Government as another Marxist ''weapon'' meant to trade BJP votes in the Assembly polls in Kerala.
Sharply reacting to CPI(M) general secretary Prakash Karat's claim to review Left support to the Centre after the Assembly polls, Mr Vadakkan said the ploy was aimed to woo the BJP, which wanted to see the fall of UPA Government.
''However, the Kerala electorate is too educated to buy this CPI(M) strategy and its hidden agenda,'' he told a press conference here.
He called for another term to the Oommen Chandy Government to carry on with the development.
The AICC secretary denounced exit polls and surveys as ''latest modes of manipulation and new arsenals of campaigning.'' He wanted the Election Commission to step in and put a to check on them.
'Some surveys are not scientific as one cannot adopt the same sample structures alike in North and South India. Exit polls, ahead of the next phase of polling, often are miniature fixed operations and hence undemocratic and immoral,'' he said.
Claiming that the Oommen Chandy Government had been moving in the right direction and wanted another term to fulfil the commitments, he said the Congress in Kerala failed to take its gains to the people because of a lack of communication management.
