The state committee of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has decided to start a campaign against the ‘minority appeasement’ of the United Democratic Front (UDF) government.
NCP state general secretary T P Peethambaran said that the government’s action of trying to impress a particular section of the society would have dangerous after-effects.
“The SNDP-NSS union is clearly a product of the state government’s favouritism towards a particular community. This will disturb the communal harmony prevailing in the state. The NCP will soon launch a campaign against this,” Peethambaran said at a press meet here.
He also demanded that the state government should bring the schools under the Area Intensive Programme into government sector instead of giving them ‘aided’ status.
Peethambaran further said that the NCP would not support murder politics. However, he added that it was not right to describe a party as ‘criminal party’ because a member committed a crime.
