Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said on Saturday, 6 April, that the Left will not allow the communal politics of the BJP to take root in the state and ensure that the saffron party does not win a single seat in the Lok Sabha polls.

Addressing the media in Alappuzha, Vijayan said the Left will overcome the challenges posed by the Sangh Parivar to the nation and its people and will work towards ousting them from power.

"We are contesting this election with an aim of bringing down the BJP from power, and that's why we have actively joined the anti-BJP front at the national level. We would like to make one thing clear. The BJP will not only face defeat in all 20 seats; they will even fail to secure the second position in any constituency this time," Vijayan said.

"The Left parties seek votes from the people to uproot the BJP, which has been implementing dangerous policies in the country," he added.

The CM also attacked the Congress party, saying the grand old party gave space and votes for the BJP, but the Left has a history of fighting the communal fascists.

"We don't change our politics for the sake of a few votes," Vijayan added.

The election for the 20 Lok Sabha seats in Kerala will be held on 26 April, and the results will be out on 4 June.

Kerala will go to the polls on 26 April to elect 20 Lok Sabha members.

In the 2019 general elections, barring the Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha seat, the BJP-led NDA candidates in Kerala finished a distant third, managing a mere 15.64 per cent vote share.

While the Congress-led UDF, which won 19 seats, secured a vote share of 47.48 per cent, the CPI(M)-led Left Front which won just one seat, got 36.29 per cent votes.
