Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is a symbol of genocide and only a representative of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh for the post of Prime Ministership, according to CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan.

“If anyone says that his popularity and acceptance is on the rise in the Indian polity, they are underestimating the country’s legacy on secularism and the fact that the vast majority of the population are secular,” he told a news conference here on Friday. Pinarayi said that the dreams of the BJP and Narendra Modi are not going to come to fruition. “The BJP represents the dominant forward castes in the society. The people will not accept any move to create fissures in the secular fabric of the country,” he said.halant Pinarayi said.

Meanwhile, around 300 CPM activists, including CPM Vellanad local committee secretary and Vellanad Service Cooperative Bank president S Krishnakumar and Vellanad panchayat former president Girija Kumari will join the BJP. Krishnakumar, who had a 35-years stint with the CPM, said that corruption and autocracy in the CPM forced him to quit the party. Earlier, Krishnakumar had filed a complaint before the Vigilance which led to a raid on the Service Cooperative Bank.
