原文：CPI(M) Kerala State Secretariat Statement on LDF’s Historic Victory
The people of Kerala have given a historic mandate to the Left Democratic Front for another continuous term for the first time.CPI(M) salutes the voters who have rewritten history and thank all those worked for it. The party would like to assure that the new government would live up and do justice to the aspirations of the people. This verdict would give renewed confidence for the CPI(M) and Left democratic forces to work among the people.
The various Left Democratic Front governments since 1957 have worked for the upliftment of the marginalised and this verdict strengthens its continuation. This verdict also establishes that the Left democratic forces of Kerala have got foundation strong enough to challenge the vile campaign of the reactionary forces.
This victory will strenghten the popular struggles against the BJP led Central government’s coup against democracy, secularism and constitution. This adds to the confidence of those fighting against these policies in the country.
This victory also establishes that the people wants a continuity and expansion of the development efforts of the government led by the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The LDF government , during its last five years, has worked tirelessly to carry out development which ensures social justice and to uphold democracy and secularism. The tremendous support from the people to a government that held them close during all crisis situations has also become evident in this election.
This victory will also help to uphold the left alternative to the anti-people economic policies and extreme communal agendas of the BJP government in the centre. Both the UDF and BJP , during the last five years, made all attempts to topple the government by unleashing violent protests and baseless allegations.
The fleet of anti-communist media too strongly supported these campaigns. Anti-left forces tirelessly tried to sabotage the elections with the help of large amounts of hawala money and by organizing fake protests. The overt public calls made by some community leaders to defeat the LDF can also be seen as part of this attempt. The Central BJP government used all the Central agencies to topple Kerala’s LDF government. The LDF has been able to overcome all these wrong moves because of the strong support of the people of Kerala. The election results prove this.
The people of Kerala wish to have a continuity of the development efforts carried out under the leadership of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The LDF has put forward a manifesto which aims at the multifaceted growth of the state. Its a mandate to bring that into practise as well.
The ‘BJP account’ which was opened with the tacit support of the UDF five years back is closed by the people of the state led by LDF. Kerala has given a strong rebuff to BJP’s communalism. The campaign led by Modi-Shah duo and a string of Central Ministers worth crores didn’t worth. The BJP state president contested two seats to give an impression that they are vying for power.
The party which boasted to come to power even with 35 seats couldn’t manage anything inspite of the work of Central agencies. Kerala has given a strong reprimand to the efforts of the Central government to destabilise the state government by violating federal principles and abusing Central power. This supreme democratic consciousness is also a clarion call that the people of Kerala won’t bow under communal terror.
The UDF aim for a communal consolidation along with the Jamaat-e-Islami also was rejected by the people. Once again Kerala has proved that it upholds the politics of secularism. All sections of the society have supported the LDF. This unprecedented popular verdict makes the CPI(M) and its activists more responsible and humble.
A governance which is committed to the people and finding answers to the issues of the people by siding with them will be continued. Its our appeal to the millions of people of Kerala to extend wholehearted support in that endeavour. Once again the CPI(M) state secretariat thank all who have contributed to this historic victory of the Left Democratic Front.
