KANNUR: Amid the controversy over criticisms raised against CPM district secretary P Jayarajan in the party state committee meeting, the party kick-started its area conferences on Tuesday at Kannur.
Jayarajan himself inaugurated the meeting of the representatives of Kannur area conference at Shikshak Sadan here. His inaugural speech saw him lashing out at BJP and the rising threat of communalism, leaving aside doubts over his unhappiness at being criticised by colleagues over his alleged self-glorification. 

“The secularist atmosphere in Kerala is being disturbed by communal forces. The situation demands strengthening of a new type of class war in the state as both RSS and Islamic fundamentalists are sabotaging the communal harmony which was the hallmark of Kerala,” Jayarajan said.

“Modi is carrying out the diktats of RSS. The diplomatic embrace with the US and Israel is the result of this,” he alleged. “The communalism of RSS is as dangerous as IS terrorism and BJP’s campaign against ‘jihadi terrorism’ is to save its face,” he said. T V Balakrishnan presided over the function. K P Sahadevan, M Prakashan, Arakkan Balan, O V Narayanan and M Shajir spoke. Leaders Vayakkadi Balakrishnan and K P Sudhakaran participated. The conference will end on Wednesday.
