It was because of Corona that the leader of the opposition Congress-led UDF did not attend the ceremony because of Kovid-19. The Kerala High Court on Wednesday directed the government to attend a limited number of people in the event in view of the epidemic.
Son-in-law gave entry in cabinet
CM Pinarayi Vijayan of Kerala has included all new faces in his cabinet. However, he is being criticized because he has given his son-in-law Mohammad Riaz a place in his cabinet. Since this move, Pinarayi Vijayan has been facing allegations of promoting familism.
KK Shailaja has no place in cabinet
KK Selja, who was the health minister in the previous Kerala government, was not included in the cabinet this time. Questions are being raised on Vijayan as well. This is also because Health Minister KK Selja had performed well in Kerala on control of Kovid. They were discussed in other states as well.
