NEW DELHI: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday said the politics in Kerala has become violent and it is driven by tension due to policies of the Left Democratic Front (LDF).
“Politics in Kerala has become violent, driven by tension due to policies of LDF. We propose to set up a peace and harmony department to ensure that this kind of tension, political murders don’t continue to happen, and politics of anger and hate is challenged,” said Priyanka Gandhi Vadra while addressing the public meeting in Chalakudy in Kerala.
According to the sources, the Congress leader is scheduled to campaign in Tamil Nadu on April 3 in Kanyakumari district. She will also visit Sriperumbudur where her father and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated.
The Congress leader also claimed that 50 per cent of the Congress candidates in Kerala are between the age of 20 and 40 years.
