KANNUR: CPM Politburo member and former state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan demanded that SNDP leader Vellappally Natesan should explain the agreement that his newly floated party Bharath Dharma Jana Sena entered with the BJP.
On the sidelines of his Nava Kerala march in Kannur on Monday, Pinarayi told reporters that RSS had provided financial help for the formation of BDJS.
‘’Vellappally is trying to make his son Thushar a central minister and discussions in this regard were held between Thushar and BJP.
Vellappally should now announce that he has no links with SNDP. Vellappally should better be a flag-bearer of the Sangh Parivar. He cannot be an SNDP office-bearer and shake hands with Sangh Parivar at the same time. The policy and principles of SNDP and Sangh Parivar are entirely different,’’ he said .
The CPM leader said the move against secularism should not be seen as a small issue.
He alleged that RSS is trying to create communal polarisation in the State.
Kannur Airport Project
Pinarayi alleged that UDF government had not taken measures to complete the Kannur Airport project.
He said that the development works of Azhikkal harbour is also in a standstill, so the government should take necessary steps to speed up the development projects.
‘’The UDF government has nothing to say about the Academy for Coast Guard in Kannur. The government should examine the reason for standstill of the announced projects in Kannur,’’ Pinarayi said.
