CPI(M) making false campaign: RSS

more-in

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) State general secretary P. Gopalan Kutty has alleged that the Communist Party of India (Marxist) [CPI(M)] is planning to instigate communal tension by launching false campaign on the recent visit of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat in the district to address a meet of functionaries of the organisation.

Mr. Kutty told a press conference here on Sunday that Mr. Bhagwat’s visit here was a scheduled visit. As he is being provided ‘Z’ category security, his visit itinerary was known to the State and Central Home Departments, he said dismissing the CPI(M) leadership’s allegation that the RSS leader had visited here discreetly with a secret agenda.

The RSS chief had inaugurated the orientation class for the functionaries and talked on organisational guidelines, he said adding that district-level leaders from across the State had attended the meeting. There was round-the-clock presence of police at Chirakkal here on November 17, 18 and 19 when the meeting was held, he said.

The RSS State general secretary said the false campaign in the CPI(M) mouthpiece Deshabhimani in connection with the RSS leader’s visit was meant to create panic among the people of minority communities. He said the RSS was planning to expand its organisational functioning to all areas in the State by 2025. Mr. Bhagwat had given direction to the functionaries on activities to be carried out for strengthening the organisational activities over the next five years, he said.

In response to a question on the ‘Samathwa Munneta Yatra’ being led by Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNDP) Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan from November 23, Mr. Kutty said the yatra was aimed at consolidation of Hindus regardless of their caste and economic background. The CPI(M), however, was jittery about erosion of votes that were traditionally cast in its favour, he added.
