Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 8 : Kerala’s main rival political fronts, the CPI-M-led Left and Congress-led UDF, on Wednesday for a change appeared to have a common agenda when they both slammed the Modi government over demonetisation, while the state unit of the BJP was in a buoyant mood.

The two fronts did not hold a unified protest, and had organised separate protests.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan inaugurated a protest meeting in front of the Reserve Bank of India state head office here.

“It’s not that demonetisation has never happened, but wherever it happened it was done after proper studies. Even the former RBI Governor has now come out in the open that he had advised against it. The question then comes on whose advice was this foolish exercise undertaken. We are told that even the cabinet had no clue, then who advised this? The Prime Minister had asked for 50 days time, and now see even after a year things have gone haywire and it has caused untold miseries,” said Vijayan.

The UDF in the state is observing a black day. At Kozhikode, senior Congress leaders, including former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala, led the protest while in Kochi state Congress president M.M. Hassan described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a “mad man”.

In the state capital the lone BJP legislator in the Kerala Assembly O. Rajagopal and other senior party leaders led a campaign where signatures were taken from people against black money and they heaped praises on the note ban on its first anniversary.

Kavita Kaushik

Bigg Boss 14 saw a massive showdown between Kavita Kaushik and Aly Goni after the actor lost his cool when she takes away his personal items as a punishment for breaking house rules.

In a fit of rage, Aly kicked a trash bin which hurt Kavita, who was standing close to it and the house erupted in chaos.

Now talking about his wife’s struggle Kavita’s husband Ronnit Biswas said, “Physical violence was never a thing which we had signed up for whether it happened directly or indirectly it doesn’t matter.”

“I had seen the promo first, a day before yesterday and I was very disturbed. But once I saw the way Kavita was putting up to it and how she was behaving I felt extremely proud of her. My sadness disappeared and I got happy thinking that no matter how much you try to target this girl, she will not bow down to anyone. She will come out shining and strong,” said a proud Ronnit in a conversation with ETimes TV.

He also went on to say that what Kavita said to Aly was not a big deal. Stating that Aly also said the same line to Kavita thrice, Ronnit revealed, “He has also said this to her thrice after that. So, I think the topic should have ended then and there itself. But I understand most of the housemates know that Kavita is quite strong and if they fight with her or corner her, they will get some footage. It is very sad that in a country where we keep talking about women are equal to men, we worship Goddess, we celebrate women and talk about women empowerment, there is a man who is threatening a woman on national television that he will make her life a living hell or won’t let her sleep.

Few of Ronnit’s relatives, who are in law enforcement, have approached him asking him if he wants to file a complaint against Aly Goni. “I have been getting a lot of calls from our well-wishers and relatives who are into the Police force, Government officials and they are asking me If I want to take action against Aly Goni or register a complaint. Although, I have told them that it is not needed, but I was expecting from the channel and the production house a stricter punishment. One week’s nomination doesn’t make any sense,” concluded Ronnit.

Let’s see if Aly and Kavita bury the hatches in weeks to come or not.
