Achuthanandan takes a dig on Kunhalikutty for stance against EC

18tvcgn03_VS_Re_19_1242346fThiruvananthapuram: Leader of opposition V S Achuthanandan on Tuesday has come out slamming Industries Minister P K Kunhalikutty and the UDF government for censuring the state election commissioner.

“Kunhalikutty’s act of censuring the state election commissioner was highly arrogant and against the principles of constitution. Neither the state government nor the Chief Minister hold any legal right to criticise or give directions to the Election Commission which is a constitutional institution which functions freely and impartially,” VS said in a press release issued here.

In the mean while, CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said, the UDF government has imposed a ‘mini emergency’ period in Kerala in order to extend the local bodies polls. “The government is stealing the EC’s powers,” alleged Kodiyeri.
