According to reports, the Kannur district election officer has issued a notice to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan based on a complaint citing a violation of the model code of conduct.
The complaint reportedly claims that Chief Minister violated the poll code established ahead of the upcoming Kerala Assembly elections by declaring that he will distribute Covid-19 vaccination at old age homes and shelter homes. He reportedly made the statement while addressing a press meet. The Election officer has given 48 hours for the CM to give an explanation over the matter.
During the press meet, the Chief Minister had alleged that the Opposition was trying to deprive food of poor people by blocking the food kits and pensions. He even added that the free food kits and pensions were not for votes but for the relief of people. "The decision to distribute food kit was not taken during the time of the election," he said.
Meanwhile, in another recent incident, reports claim that MLA Kovoor Kunjumon was pushed by the Chief Minister's security guard. According to reports, the incident took place while the MLA was accompanying the CM to take part in LDF's meeting at Kunnathur.
Reportedly, Pinarayi's security guard grabbed the MLA by his neck and pushed him while he was walking along with Pinarayi Vijayan towards the venue. However, the MLA's office responded by saying that the MLA was accidentally pushed by the security guard while handling the crowd.
