Kerala’s political pot as fresh allegations against Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s daughter’s IT firm, Exalogic, ignite a war of words between the ruling CPI(M) and the opposition Congress-led UDF. The UDF, armed with a recent ROC report, accuses Exalogic of illicit transactions and demands a CBI or ED probe, questioning the ongoing Corporate Affairs Ministry investigation as a mere political ploy.
The CPI(M) fiercely defends Veena, calling the allegations “politically motivated” and part of the BJP’s “Sangh Parivar” strategy to destabilize them before the polls. They claim the Vigilance Court cleared the deal between Exalogic and CMRL, and the ROC report is being weaponized. Meanwhile, the BJP asserts their neutrality, promising a thorough investigation without any “secret pact.”
With tension thick in the air, several key questions remain unanswered. Neither the Chief Minister nor Veena has addressed the matter, leaving much speculation in its wake. The UDF remains unconvinced by the current probe, demanding court-monitored investigations for complete transparency. Only time will tell whether the central investigation is truly impartial or simply a tool in the larger political game. This saga surrounding Exalogic promises to be a major point of contention in Kerala’s political landscape in the coming months, potentially influencing the public’s perception of both the ruling party and the central government in the run-up to the elections.
