A seminar on Challenges to Secularism  was organised in connection with the Party Congress at C H Kanaran Nagar (Town Square). Inaugurating the seminar  CPI-M  Politburo member Prakash Karat  said that Congress leader Shashi Tharoor MP had agreed to attend the seminar but the Congress party has prohibited it. `Everyone with a secular  and democratic mind will say that it is necessary to discuss this subject. I have seen the statement issued by Shashi Tharoor on this matter. He wrote that it  was  an important seminar and  he was eager to  attend the seminar. But  his  party leadership in Kerala and the AICC leadership has asked him to not attend. So he is abstaining.' Prakash pointed out that this  stand of Congress leaders would further damage and destroy their credibility among people.

We  have emerged as Indians irrespective of religion or caste  they belong to. State has no  religion. But the present ruling party  BJP which is run and controlled by the fascistic  RSS is trying to destroy the secular nature of our country. This is the fundamental challenge the country and people facing-Prakash Karat said.

CPI General Secretary D Raja and Congress- S  state president    Ramachandran Kadannappalli  MLA also spoke. CPI-M  Central Committee member E P Jayarajan presided over the seminar.
