KOCHI:  Former Acting Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court Justice C N Ramchandran Nair said that only a secular political party should get power in a secular country.  He was delivering the inaugural address at a public meeting organised by the Kerala chapter of the Global Nair Sewa Samaj (GNSS).

Lauding the equidistance policy of the Nair Service Society (NSS), he pointed out that the NSS never thought of forming a political party. “We live in an era when communal parties become or form political parties. It was a wise decision by the NSS leadership to abstain from party politics,” said Justice Ramachandran Nair.

He said that forward communities need not have to worry about future of the next generation as the government had constituted a separate commission to look into the issues faced by them. “No government can go forward by ignoring the forward communities,” he said.

Delivering the keynote address, retired IAS officer C V Ananda Bose said the Nair community had the strength to achieve more,  but the strength was being under-utilised. “The community should stand  united to achieve what it aspires for. We need  not attack anyone, but must be able to defend ourselves,” said Ananda Bose.
