In an escalating political tussle, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has labeled a priest, who criticized the ruling Left's Lok Sabha election defeat on Facebook, as 'ignorant'.

Geevarghese Coorilos, former Metropolitan of Niranam Diocese with pro-Left leanings, stated that floods and epidemics won't save politicians repeatedly. He asserted his social media critique, which included scrutinizing the Left's strategy against Congress and Rahul Gandhi rather than BJP, remains unaddressed despite being called 'ignorant' by Vijayan.

The priest responded, saying he avoids engaging in personal comments and his loyalty to the Left front remains unchanged despite the criticism.
