CPI(M) urges government to keep communal leaders under check

‘PFI and Sangh Parivar complementary to each other’

The Communist Party of India (Marxists) has urged the State government to keep under control communal-minded leaders from both Hindu and Muslim communities prompting communal clashes in Dakshina Kannada.

In a press release, G.V. Srirama Reddy, State Secretary, CPI(M), alleged that the RSS leader, Kalladka Prabhakara Bhat, is known for making provocative speeches. The government should have controlled his activities much earlier.

Alleging that the Popular Front of India (PFI) was a Muslim fundamentalist organisation, Mr. Reddy said that the “activities of the PFI and the Sangh Parivar are complementary to each other”.

He alleged that both Hindu and Muslim fundamentalist organisations were promoting hatred and communal clashes in Bantwal. There was nothing wrong in B. Ramanath Rai, Minister in-charge of Dakshina Kannada, giving instructions to then Superintendent of Police Bhusan Gulabrao Borase at the Circuit House in Bantwal to take steps to maintain communal harmony in Dakshina Kannada. It was his duty. There was an urgent need to quell communal tension in Dakshina Kannada, he said.
