Mangaluru, Feb 24, 2017: The DK district unit of the CPI(M) has strongly condemned the ’fascist’ acts of the Sangh Parivar aimed at disrupting the Karavali Sauharda Rally organised by the party in Mangaluru on February 25 and called upon the people of the district to co-operate towards the success of the rally.
Speaking to reporters here on February 24, Friday, G V Srirama Reddy, State Committee Secretary of the CPI(M) said the party deplored the attempts made by the Parivar organisations to prevent the participation of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in the rally.
"The Sangh Parivar and the BJP have never accepted the Indian constitution, while Hindutva remains their sole agenda," he alleged.
Criticising the Hindu outfits for describing the Kerala CM as a merchant of death, he said this makes their attitude of twisting history and facts amply clear."The CPI(M) will not get bogged down by threats and attacks. The party is ready for any sacrifice to face the onslaught of fascist forces," he declared.
"Communal elements gaining an upper hand would be an insult to the culture of this land where the great saint philosopher Narayan Guru had set foot. There is a need for the people of the district to be cautious," he said.
Pointing out that the CPI(M) has fought for the cause of the masses in the district in the post-independence era, he recalled the party’s fight for the cause of farmers, against atrocities on women, justice for Sowjanya and against Pankti Bedha and Made Snana practices.
V J K Nair, J Balakrishna Shetty, CPI(M) State Secretariat Members, K Yadav Shetty, CPI(M) State Committee member, Muneer Katipalla, DYFI state unit President were also present at the press meet.
