A day after he was advised by Madhya Pradesh Police not to attend an event in Bhopal in view of Sangh Parivar protest, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan today hit out at the BJP-ruled state saying police did not take action against the protesters as it was organised by RSS. Vijayan, who is a senior member of the CPI(M) politburo, said the experience he underwent in Bhopal is a reflection of the culture of the Sangh Parivar and the government supported by them.

“It (protest) was organised by the RSS. When a Chief Minister of a state is going to attend a programme, a protest is organised without any reasons. And police is not taking any action as the protest is being organised by the RSS, then asking the Chief Minister not to attend the function.

“We should see a cultural issue in it,” Vijayan told reporters here.

CPI(M) had alleged the chief minister was supposed to attend a felicitation programme organised by Kerala Samaj in Bhopal on Saturday but when he was about to leave for attending it, Madhya Pradesh Police told him not to go there as RSS and other organisations were protesting against it.

Following the protest, the programme was cancelled and the Kerala Chief Minister went back.

Leaders of some Hindu outfits had organised a protest before the BSSS college gate, where Pinarayi was supposed to be felicitated in the evening. Police later took nearly 20 protesters into custody from the spot.

Bhopal Malyali Community Association Programme Convenor O D Joseph had said the programme was organised without the presence of Vijayan, whose scheduled visit to the venue was “cancelled due to security reasons”.

DIG of Bhopal Raman Singh Sikarwar had clarified that in view of the protest by Hindu outfits, police requested the Kerala Chief Minister to delay his visit to the venue for security reasons.

“We have never said that we won’t provide security to him. We were ready to take him to the venue but in order to avoid unpleasant situation, we had just asked him to delay the visit,” he had said on Saturday.

“However, Vijayan decided not to visit the venue and therefore it was cancelled,” he had claimed.

      Party of Kerala CM is responsible for hundreds of political murders across North Kerala since 1970 - victims include members from all other parties but mainly from BJP. Communist Party dominate far north of Kerala and situation here is such that there is no guarantee for life of a political worker who is not a member of Communist Party - he might get inated or maimed by goons of Communist Party. Since he took over as CM this May, political violence and murder have increased in North Kerala.

        Nearly half crore Kerala people are working in Madhya Pradesh as they had to travel thousands of miles from their home land in search of their livelihood because of unemployment and poverty in the state of Kerala. The communists are responsible for the situation in Kerala, they will never allow industries there nor do the investors prefer go there because of the hostile working environment, frequent harthals, banths celebrated by the communists. Why this Pinaray Vijayan needs to come to MP?

          "Communal Harmony is at its best" – This is continuing in Kerala because of the broad mindedness of Kerala Hindus and also "HINDUISM" as a religion. Are you aware that CONVERTED Christians have FRAUDULENTLY gulped up 50% of Kerala's lands. Though CONVERTED Christian potion in India is less than 3% of total Indian potion, Catholic Church of India is the SECOND LARGEST LANDOWNER in India, just behind Govt. of India(i.e. Ministry of Railways ,Ministry of Defence etc..). "When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said 'Let us pray.' We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land." CONVERTED Christian Missionaries followed the same FRAUDULENT TECHNIQUES in Kerala and elsewhere in India to occupy land and also convert innocent Hindus by monetary inducements.

            CPM is getting the taste of their own medicine outside areas(states) where they are not as powerful as in Kannur, Kerala. Their atude toward Congress, Muslim League and BJP followers in Kannur is really very deplorable. Atleast now, the CPM of Kerala should realise that there is a big,big world outside Kannur, Kerala. States like MP have provided more employment opportunities to educated, unemplo Keralites than Communist or Marxist Party of Kerala.Kerala's communist leaders understands very well that "If you are not a Socialist till you are 25 years, it means you have got no heart but if you remain one after 25 years of age, it means that you have got no brains". Hence, children and relatives of Communist Leaders of Kerala, once they turn 25 years of age CUNNINGLY leave the state and migrate to Greener Capitalistic, Consumeristic areas in Gulf, America or other neighbouring states to earn money, become rich and enjoy but innocent communist followers remain in Kerala unemplo and poor but fully immersed in impractical, outdated and utopian communist ideologies.These Communist Leaders of old school of thought are infact cheating the innocent Communist followers with impractical, outdated and utopian Communist ideologies.
