Nair Service Society general secretary G Sukumaran Nair, on Monday, asserted that the organisation would stand firm in its resolve against the policy of minority appeasement followed by governments.
He was speaking after inaugurating the Nair centenary conference organised by the Changanassery taluk union of the NSS at Perunna on Vijayadasami day.
“The NSS adopted a tough stance when the wrong policies of governments led to the denial of due rights to the majority community and minority communities were seen to be usurping undue benefits.
It was on the basis this stance that the NSS and the SNDP decided to stand together.
The NSS will definitely stick to its decisions which were taken to protect the rights of the majority community, no matter, whoever is with us,” Sukumaran Nair said.
He added that NSS would never run counter to the award of benefits to minority communities that are legal and abides by the constitution.
“It is the proclaimed policy of the NSS to raise voice against social injustices and the wrong policies of the governments.
The NSS doesn’t have any vested interest or political motives. Our stance is clear and genuine. It is unfortunate that there was an attempt to weaken our claims by depicting it as communal,” Sukumaran Nair said.
He said that when NSS raised the issue of the shortcomings in the appointment of the teachers in aided schools, the government did care to look into the issue.
Sukumaran Nair also demanded the implementation of the recommendations in the S R Sinhu commission, which was constituted to look in to the issues being faced by the majority communities.
NSS president P N Narendranathan Nair presided over the function.
Vice President Prof V P Haridas, treasurer Dr M Sasikumar and Karayogam registrar K N Viswanatha Pillai also spoke. NSS Changanasseri union president Harikumar Koyikkal welcomed the gathering and vice president V G Bhaskaran Nair delivered vote of thanks.
