    Vijayan protested in Jantar Mantar a day after Siddaramaiah's protest

    The Union is making laws which encroach on the powers of the state: Pinarayi

    How can we go to the Supreme Court for these small things?: Kejriwal

A day after Karnataka CM Siddaramaih along with other Congress MLAs protested in Delhi against alleged discrimination in tax distribution, the Chief Minister of Kerala Pinarayi Vijayan also followed suit. He protested in front of the Jantar Mantar in Delhi. “A democracy envisaged as a Union of States is slowly being crippled into an undemocratic union over States, especially against Opposition-ruled States. We have gathered here to protest against this and restore the Centre-State balance. The Union is making laws which encroach on the powers of the state in Agriculture, Cooperation and so forth. This shows how states are being trampled upon. This agitation is intended to safeguard the constitutional rights of all states, not merely Kerala’s. The aim of this struggle is not to triumph over anyone, but to secure what we rightfully deserve instead of surrendering,” he said. 

Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal was also present in the venue to show solidarity for the cause. “Vijayan Sir is not fighting to take these funds home, it’s for the people of Kerala. They are looting us more than the British. How can we go to the Supreme Court for these small things? Opposition parties represent 70 crore people in the country. The BJP has waged a war against the opposition-ruled states. The Centre is using all the tactics to harass the opposition governments,” Kejriwal stated.
