Communist CM to go to US for treatment!
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will travel to the US for a medical treatment at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He could undergo a surgery, too. It will be a 13-day visit starting August 19.
A Communist Chief Minister going to the capitalist nation for treatment has caught the attention of critics. Why not admit himself to a government-run hospital in his own state or in India, critics are asking. Ironically, the Kerala CM had told the UP CM Yogi Aditya Nath to come to Kerala to see how hospitals are run in his state!
It's telling that ideological leaders don't stand by their own professed beliefs. Those who abide by Swadeshi, for example, use foreign products. Those who oppose cow slaughter, for example, happily use leather products. Those who say they are anti-Allopathy take treatment in multi-specialty hospitals. The list of hypocrisies is unlimited.
