Nair-Ezhava unity will bring about a healthy reformation in the political history of Kerala, O. Rajagopal, the former Union Minister and senior leader of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has said.

Mr. Rajagopal was talking to reporters here on Friday. Welcoming the statement issued by the leaders of the Nair Service Society (NSS) and the Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP) in Perunna on the Nair-Ezhava unity on Friday, the BJP leader alleged that only minorities were getting the government’s protection in Kerala.

Mr. Rajagopal said the propaganda that the Nair-Ezhava unity move initiated by the two organisations would harm the interests of those who presently enjoyed reservation benefits was baseless. He alleged that such propaganda was part of a misleading campaign with a dubious design to divert public attention from the real issues.
