The government expressed its concern about too much central control at the Raj Bhavan during this crucial event.

The 15th Finance Commission adds weight to the story, affecting Kerala’s finances. Discontent over reduced allocations and loans from entities like Kifbi and Pension Company pushed Kerala to the Supreme Court, highlighting central neglect.

The upcoming budget on February 5 promises a political battleground. Issues range from the tragic suicide of a disabled, person individual to tensions around Rahul Mangoothil. Each topic becomes a weapon in this political skirmish.

The legislative session, stretching until March 27, turns into a political theater. The Governor plays a crucial role in articulating government policy amid street confrontations. The fate of eight bills hangs in the balance.

The battleground expands beyond the House, with the Government-Opposition clash reaching new heights. The opposition, armed with findings against the Chief Minister’s daughter’s company, financial crises, and controversies, is preparing for battle.
