'Attempts to threaten voters prove futile in Kerala', says M V Govindan

g

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM state secretary M V Govindan stated that some entities are attempting to influence voters by threatening them just hours before the polls. He emphasized that such efforts to intimidate leaders, activists and citizens by instilling fear are futile in Kerala, where community organizations including Samasta maintain an independent and neutral stance.

In democratic India, every citizen has the right to think and vote freely. Currently, Kerala stands as a beacon for living, traveling and expressing opinions openly, including exercising this fundamental right. Govindan emphasized that it is unacceptable to intimidate those who step forward to exercise their democratic rights and express their opinions in Kerala. Kerala has historically triumphed over such intimidation tactics and those involved should cease such threats. He also stressed that voters should recognize that they will not succumb to any such coercion.

Simultaneously, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan emphasized that every vote must be cast to uphold constitutional values and establish an administrative system grounded in fraternity. He urged citizens to exercise their right to vote with the highest democratic principles in mind. Additionally, he highlighted that the exercise of our democratic rights should guarantee the reasonable democratic constitutional rights of the states and foster unity among people transcending differences.
