THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: ABVP’s maha rally held here on Saturday called for sending a high-powered Central Government delegation to study the political killings in Kerala. Addressing the public meeting at the maha rally, ABVP national general secretary Vinay Bidre called for handing over the investigation of the political murders to the CBI. He said the CBI should conduct a re-investigation into the murder of Vadikkal Ramakishnan, in which Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan was an accused.
He also sought investigation by the National Investigation Agency into the murders in which extremist links were suspected. “Kerala, the land of Sankaracharya, is the pride of the entire nation. But the communist ideology is anti-national. The Chalo Kerala march was organised to regain that pride and expose the double standards of the communists in Kerala and Delhi,” he said. In Delhi they speak about freedom of expression, and in Kerala they kill their opponents while propagating their ideology. He said communist movement had always been anti-national.
“They stood with China during the Sino- Indian war. The anti-national elements had even crept into the campuses. That is why in the college magazine of Brennen College Thalassery, they insulted the national anthem and Indian nationalism” he alleged. The Chalo Kerala March is to caution the Left movement in the state that the workers of the ABVP in the state are not alone and the entire nation will stand with them, said Sunil Ambedkar. Nithi Tripadhi, ABVP leader from JNU, pointed out the double standards of the SFI and the Left thinkers, both in JNU and Kerala. In Kerala, they are perpetuating violence and not permitting other student organisations to work on the campuses, where they are in majority.
At the same time, in JNU, they are speaking about freedom of expression. K S Sanoop, the vice president of the ABVP Kerala unit, turned the entire gathering emotional when he removed his artificial eyes. His eyes were lost in an SFI attack when he won the post of chairperson of the Sree Krishna College, Guruvayur.
He promised the gathering that he will not be cowed down by the threats of the Left. C Sadanandan Master, who lost both his legs in CPM attack also spoke at the event. ABVP national president Dr Nagesh Thakur, Kishore Bhurman, Ashish Chauhan (National secretaries of the ABVP), Mahamedha Nagar (General secretary, Delhi University Union) and P Syamraj (State secretary) also spoke on the occasion. The rally taken out from Museum junction was noted for the massive participation of students from across the state wearing their traditional head gear.
