BJP will have to start from scratch; Party doesn’t need speakers but workers: P P Mukundan

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Former Organising General Secretary P P Mukundan has said the BJP will have to start from Hari Sree (start from scratch) in order to strengthen the party.

Excerpts from the interview he gave to Kerala Kaumudi on Monday.

“Surgery will have to be done where it has to be done. But leaders are forgetting the party when they eye for positions in the party. What is more important is the dedication of leaders and not popularity. That should be the responsibility of the new State president. The organization should be overhauled. What the party needs are workers and not speakers. It is not enough if they go to the people only when the election approaches. They will have to take over people’s protests”

Mukundan criticized the timing of appointing BJP leader Sreedharan Pillai as the Mizoam governor. He compared the decision with that taken in the case of Kummanam Rajasekharan. “Pillai should not be like Kummanam, who ended up without any position. Removing Kummanam as well as Pillai soon after party’s failure in elections resulted in negative campaigns against the party.”

Mukundan said that the BJP was not able to work with insights. The by-election happened even before they could get over the embarrassment caused by their inability to cash in on Sabarimala issue.

“There is no point in justifying the failure in the elections. The BJP workers didn’t even distribute the election slips this time… This should be inquired into. If the BJP doesn’t work properly Nemon will also slip from their hands after one and a half year,” he said.
