The DYFI leadership is demanding that a strong investigation be conducted against Vidyasathisan, who had launched a strike against K-Rail for taking bribes from corporates. DYFI state secretary VK Sanoj and president V Wasif said in a press conference that the allegation that opposition leader VD Satheesan took a bribe of Rs 150 crore from IT corporates to subvert the Silver Line, which was decided to be implemented by the state government to solve travel problems and create new employment opportunities in Kerala, is shocking.
In Kerala, the state where the youth are most interested in working in Kerala, the protest against the K Rail project, which was designed to improve basic physical facilities and bring employment and investment in various sectors including the IT sector, was a challenge to the people of Kerala.
DYFI also criticized that the opposition in Kerala and some media were trying to sabotage the project by working in an organized manner against the high-speed rail line. Congress and BJP, who have no problem with expressways in other states of India, took a stand that they would not allow it only in Kerala, which was suspicious even then. Now it is understood that behind this double standard of Congress was the money poured by corporates.
DYFI leaders say that according to the information coming out, the opposition leader received a bribe of 150 crore rupees in three installments from IT corporates based in Karnataka and it was all-India leader of the Congress, KC Venugopal, who was the middleman.
DYFI demanded investigation and legal action against VD Satheesan, who has undermined the development dreams of the people of Kerala, destroyed the employment opportunities of the youth and cheated Kerala by buying the behavior of corporates. DYFI held a protest in the capital yesterday. DYFI says that youth protest will be held in district and regional centers across the state today.
