THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi treats Indian states like colonies of the imperial age. He also opined that it’s time to restructure the state-centre relationship if we want to strengthen the federal setup in the country.

The chief minister was inaugurating the seminar on ‘Centre-State Relationship’, organised by the AKG Centre for Research and Studies.

“Usually the Prime Minister heed to the common needs of a state when a chief minister approaches but Kerala had two different bad experiences,” he said, and added: “A federal setup can be sustained only if there is a strong centre and prosperous states.  But the centre is practising rules and regulation that is destroying an already fragile federal setup, and this is degrading the states to mere dominions of the centre.”

He added: “The centre is signing all the SARC and other agreements without considering the interests of the states. The rubber and coconut oil industry in the state fell into a financial crisis because of such international agreements that the centre signed.”

He also observed that incidents of governors and the president rejecting the rules passed by state assemblies have increased. “Governors are appointed without consulting with the respective state governments and these governors have political bias. This is what happened in Manipur and Goa,” he said.

The CM also pointed out that the centre has forced various financial regulations on the states regarding the limit of taking debt and sharing of central taxes. “These are non-democratic policies.”

He further alleged that the central government is acting like the RSS who challenges the federal constitution. “It is acting like the RSS which doesn’t do what it talks about and does what it never talks about. They are centralising power more and more while giving speeches about distributing power to different centres,” said Pinarayi.

He concluded by saying that our country is fast moving towards a state where we have to fight to protect our fundamental rights.
