Thiruvananthapuram: Congress president Sonia Gandhi rounded off her three-venue whirlwind electioneering in the State on Wednesday by launching a frontal attack on the Communist Party of India (Marxist).

Ms. Gandhi, who addressed election rallies at Haripad, Thrissur and Kozhikode, spoke on different themes at these venues to take on the CPI(M) and its policies. The main thread of her election speeches was to dub the CPI(M) as a party behind the times in its principles and priorities, steeped in corruption and insensitive to the people's needs.

She aimed at providing a fillip to the United Democratic Front's election campaign by projecting the coalition as one which moved with the times without compromising on its core principles.

At Haripad, she dwelt on the failure of the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front government to utilise the liberal financial assistance extended by the Central government, including the Kuttanad package and the tsunami project.

In Thrissur, she hit out at the CPI(M) for opposing development initiatives and innovation. She did not spare the LDF for taking credit for some of the social welfare initiatives undertaken by the Central government.

In Kozhikode, she harped on the politics of violence unleashed by the CPI(M) in north Malabar to decimate its opponents.
