Indicating that he is in favour of a third front led by BJP in Kerala, former ISRO chairman G Madhavan Nair on Tuesday said that he would cooperate with Hindu Ezhava leader Vellappally Natesan’s Kerala yatra.

Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNDP) Yogam general secretary Natesan will launch a statewide tour next month to highlight its demand of social justice. Nair has agreed to be the patron of the yatra, said Natesan’s son and SNDP Yogam vice-president Thushar Vellappally.

If the disappointment of the Kerala electorate towards the Congress and CPM-led political fronts gets translated into votes, the third front would be a reality in Kerala, said Nair.

However, he said that he would not join politics, but back the movement ideologically.

Meanwhile, former Naxalite Philip M Prasad said that he would join hands with Natesan as “both the Congress and CPM are opposed to the idea of the rise of the backward class”.
