Mangaluru, April 28, 2020: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan who had recently knocked the Supreme Court after Karnataka sealed its borders with Kerala, has now drawn flak for instructing his own officials to seal borders of Kerala.
Mangaluru South MLA D Vedavyas Kamath took to Twitter to express his unhappiness. “Now we can clearly see the Double Standards of @vijayanpinarayi, sealing the borders of TN and KTKA. When DK Administration closed borders as Pro-active procedures, Kerala CM went to SC and now seals his own state borders. This is a Face palm moment,” he tweeted.
It may be recalled here that recently when Dakshina Kannada district closed borders with Kerala and even disallowed patients from Kerala into Dakshina Kannada, the Kerala government had approached the Supreme Court.
Now the Kerala CM has ordered officials to seal borders so that people from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu do not cross over. It is believed that the rise in Covid-19 cases in Dakshina Kannada and in Karnataka has forced the Kerala CM to take such a step.
