RSS - Jamaat-e-Islami Talks Expose Congress-League Stance: MV Govindan

Web Desk(Tvm)Updated: Wednesday Feb 22, 2023

Kannur : The  responses of Congress and League leaders reinforce CPI(M) accusation that RSS - Jamaat-e-Islami talks were held with connivance of  leaders of the Congress-League-Welfare Party trio, said CPI(M) State Secretary MV Govindan. How does it matter to us if some Muslim party holds talks with RSS in Delhi, so said VD Satheesan in his response, adding that the talks must get good certificate, said MV Govindan at press conference on sidelines of  People’s Resistance Rally(Janakeeya Prathirodha Jatha) led by Party State Seceretary..

In other words, what VD Satheesan asked is - what’s wrong if Jamaat-e-Islami held talks with an organisation that proclaims the minorities must be subject to genocide and wiped out. The response once again exposes KPCC’s mild Hindutva mindset. League leader Kunhalikutty says the topic is unwarranted controversy to cover up governance lapses.

Thus both Congress and its ally dont see anthing  wrong about the talks that took place. And, who could be more happier than RSS to be having both Congress and League in Kerala vouch there’s nothing wrong with the talks. In effect, both parties are lending political avenue to the organisation whose ideology led to assassination of father of the nation and razing down of the Babri Masjid. The discerning public of Kerala can well see the danger this holds.

We welcome Kerala High Court gesture of publishing two verdicts in Malayalam on the International Mother Language Day. On Mother Language Day of Tuesday, the Division Bench headed by Kerala High Court headed by Chief Justice S Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chali  gave out two of their rulings in Malayalam. Such decisions will help the State govt efforts to forster  and thrive our mother tongue.  

The deliberate delay in implementing the Supreme Court verdict on higher pension is the latest example of the Modi government's callous disregard for workers. Although the Supreme Court granted four months to apply for  proportionate pension option while  the  EPFO ​​issued the Order in last ten days of this deadline only.  To top it,  the  last-minute Order comes riddled with ambiguities. The Centre must come forward with concern for the working class at least at this late moment, said MV Govindan.
