KOCHI: The Federation of Backward Class Employees' Association has said the Nair Service Society's `interference' in the Narendran Commission report issue is `unwarranted,' as it is not a party to it.

The NSS leaders' recent remarks on the commission report is aimed at creating a rift among the backward class communities, federation's general secretary J. Asokan alleged. He said the report concerned only the backward classes and their adequate representation in Government service, and not the forward castes. The forward communities too have a quota - the general merit quota - , he said.

He noted that the commission had held detailed consultations with all communities and parties concerned before presenting its report.

Hence, there was no need for fresh discussions, or consultations, now and no need for a new `unanimity of views of all concerned,' as suggested by the NSS.

Meanwhile, the Kerala Latin Catholic Association termed mysterious the statement of Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee president that a convergence of views of all communities would be sought over the commission report.

Felix J. Pulloodan, president of the association, suspected that the UDF's move to get the approval of those communities "which were keen on sabotaging the Narendran report" was a ploy to further delay its implementation.

He warned the United Democratic Front Government that if it deceived the backward communities by backtracking from the promise to make special recruitments with an eye on the Assembly elections, it would have to pay a heavy price.
