'Kelu is victim of CPM's 'Thambran' policy, CPM has done appeasement which even League did not do'

k-surendran

PALAKKAD: BJP state president K Surendran has alleged that OR Kelu, who is about to take charge as the new Minister for the Welfare of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Backward Classes, is the victim of CPM's 'Thambran' (feudal) policy. Lashing out at the CPM, Surendran said that although Kelu has been made a minister, he has not been given important portfolios.

"Kelu should be given all the portfolios that K Radhakrishnan handled. This is a denial of justice to the Scheduled Tribes," Surendran said.

Surendran also said that the BJP would field a strong candidate in the Palakkad by-election.

"We will take a decision on the candidate in Palakkad after consultations. We have gained energy from the Lok Sabha elections. Preparations for the assembly by-elections are now underway. In 2021, Shafi won in Palakkad because of the votes given by Muslim comrades. There is a possibility of cross-voting this time as well," Surendran said.

"MV Govindan's remark that BJP got the votes of SNDP and Christian communities is provocative. He is trying to justify the heavy defeat suffered by the CPM. It is not aligned with reality. MV Govindan made provocative remarks against Vellappally.
Why isn't Govindan not assessing how Muslims voted? CPM is the party that did Muslim appeasement. They referred to Elamaram Kareem as 'Kareemikka' as part of the communal appeasement. During the election campaigns, CPM sought votes by raising the name of the Muslim community. However, Muslim comrades supported the UDF. Why is Govindan remaining silent about this? Muslim votes got leaked because of Muslim appeasement. The votes of Muslim comrades were compiled by some Muslim organizations. The CPM has done appeasement that even the Muslim League did not do. CPM will not survive if it continues this communal appeasement," he added.
