Ready to Associate

KOZHIKODE:Giving a clear indication of the party’s inclination to join the LDF in the state, Janata Dal(U) state president M P Veerendrakumar has publicly announced his willingness to associate with the Left forces to resist communal fascist forces in the country.

Attending a pro-CPM function after a gap of six years and sharing dais with CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, Veerendrakumar said, “We will go to any extent to resist communal fascism being spread by the RSS in the country. For this, we will associate with the Left parties irrespective of coalitions and cutting across boundary lines,” Veerendrakumar said.

Hailing the seminar organisers for bringing Veerendrakumar to the programme, Kodiyeri said such occasions could create breakthroughs in politics.

More than a seminar, the event eventually turned out to be a homecoming affair at the Town Hall here. The packed audience received Veerendrakumar with a huge round of applause, which was repeated when Kodiyeri Balakrishnan shook hands with him before entering the dais.

In the meantime, district and state functionaries of the CPM were seen receiving the leaders of Janata Dal(U).

Speaking on the occasion, both Veerendrakumar and Kodiyeri unleashed harsh criticism against the Modi government’s alleged attempts to implement Hindutva agenda in the country.

“Under the aegis of the RSS, the Modi government is swift in bringing changes in the laws dealing with forest, sea, coastal regions and road. This is not for the welfare of the Hindus but to implement the Hindutva agenda and to favour the growth of corporates -- in fact, expression of gratitude to the billionaires who have pumped money for the BJP during the elections,” Kodiyeri said.

CPM leaders P Mohanan, T P Ramakrishnan, M Bhaskaran, A Pradeepkumar, JD(U) leaders Salim Madavoor, Moyinkutty, Premnath and Kelu Ettan Study and Research Centre director K T Kunhikannan were also present. The seminar was organised by Kelu Ettan Study and Research Centre.
