THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Close on the heels of the CPI leadership voicing its opposition to the proposal for Special Economic Zones in Kerala, the State RSP leadership has come out with a statement warning parties who champion the cause of SEZs of serious consequences.

The statement, issued by RSP State secretary V.P. Ramakrishna Pillai here on Monday, is silent about the proposal for SEZs in the State, but says there could be no two views on the fact that parties that support SEZs were adopting hostile stand towards the Indian social situation.

Mr. Pillai said the SEZs were yet another facet of the exploitative capitalist system and the attempts by the UPA government to promote SEZs. — Special Correspondent
