Party's four-member fact-finding team from New Delhi to reach State today
The State government is repeatedly ignoring the warnings sent by Central intelligence agencies regarding the activities of certain fundamentalist organisations, Bharatiya Janata Party State president V. Muraleedharan has said.
He was addressing a press conference at the Pathanamthitta Press Club here on Thursday. The government's negligent attitude had led to the flourishing of anti-national elements in different parts of the State. The seizures in the raid conducted by the police at the residences of Popular Front of India leaders reportedly hinted at various anti-national activities being planned by the organisation, he alleged.
It is pathetic that the law and order machinery ignores the situation at Anwarserry in the wake of the warrant issued against Abdul Nasir Maudany by the Karnataka police, he said.
The government is in a pitiable situation in which orphans are being used as shields to block the arrest of Maudany, he said. Prohibitory orders should be issued there to ease the tension, he said. BJP district secretary V.A. Suraj was present.
Mr. Muraleedharan said the party had taken in all seriousness the ‘brutal attack' on Professor T.J. Joseph at Muvattupuzha. A four-member team (of the party) from New Delhi will reach the State on Friday to inquire into the incident.
He said the fact-finding team will be headed by Harish Pathak, MP. Wilfred Wilsina, former Health Minister of Goa; Pinky Pankaj and Bala Subrahmanyam, BJP national executive committee members, will be the other members.
Mr. Muraleedharan also inaugurated a BJP district convention at Kizhakkedathu Mariyam complex here. V.N. Unni, BJP district president, presided. Prathapachandra Varma, party national executive member, and A.G. Unnikrishnan, State secretary, also spoke.
