CPI(M) Polit Bureau Member and Kerala State Secretary, Kodiyeri Balakrishnan appealed to the Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam to stand alongside the Party in the fight against the communal forces.
People of Kerala once again rose to the occasion to make the all India strike a grand success. The whole state remained stand still and the normal life was affected. Factories, offices both government and private, shops and establishments remained closed. No public transport was functional throughout the day.
Some reports have appeared in the media in Kerala that the Central Committee has directed the Kerala Party leadership not to maintain contacts with certain social and religious organisations.
An estimated 25 lakh people participated in the 1000 km long dharna in Kerala registering an emphatic protest against the disastrous policies being pursued by the BJP-led Central Government and the Congress-led UDF government in the state.
Thousands of people in Kerala enthusiastically took part in the massive nationwide protest called by Left Parties against the mounting corruption of BJP’s central and state leaders.
The public criticisms made by Comrade V. S. Achuthanandan against the leadership of the Party at the Central and state level, in an interview to the media, are wrong and groundless. The Polit Bureau rejects these allegations. Such public utterances of Comrade Achuthanandan are not in the interests of the Party.
The series of gruesome murders by RSS against the CPI(M) continues in Kerala. Comrade R. Vijayan (43), member of the CPI(M)'s Karappotta branch and unit member of the Auto Taxi Union (CITU), was killed by RSS criminals on Sunday evening in Kannambra, near Vadakkencherry in Palakkad district. Vijayan was on his way to a house near his home when the Hindutva terrorists ambushed him with deadly weapons
A dawn to dusk hartal is being observed through Kerala today at the call of the Left Democratic Front protesting the brutal lathicharge and attack on LDF MLAs and activists by the Chandy government in their attempt to stiffle the opposition in its crusade against corruption. Processions were taken out in various parts of the state today.
The UDF government unleashed unprecedented storm of violence inside and outside the Kerala Legislative Assembly, injuring hundreds of people including MLAs, in a shameful attempt to get the Budget for financial year 2015-2016 placed in the Assembly by tainted finance minister K M Mani. Throwing all legislative norms and decorum to the winds, K M Mani, who is accused of various corruption allegations, read out the first page of the Budget when the Speaker was not present on the dais. Mani was standing in the fourth row of treasury bench, guarded by UDF legislators and a large number watch and ward staff.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the Chandy government’s use of police to brutally attack LDF MLAs inside the assembly and against the public outside the assembly premises. LDF MLAs and the people were protesting demanding that Finance Minister, K.M. Mani should not place the budget as there is a vigilance probe against him which was instituted by the UDF government on allegations of corruption
