Paravur: When CPI (M) leader P Jayarajan and actor Salim Kumar met at the latter’s house here, the differences in their political ideologies just vanished into thin air.

Admiring Salim Kumar for his humorous characters in movies, Jayarajan said he always enjoyed the actor’s comedy roles. The CPI (M) leader said the visit was completely personal though it was during his electioneering in the constituency.

During their friendly chat, Salim Kumar said he pursued a ‘positive politics’ which never rated opponents ‘negatively’.  He also noted that it was Jayarajan’s truthfulness, sincerity and corruption-less politics which attracted him.     

Jayarajan said he admires Salim Kumar the same way as Jagathy Sreekumar. “Though I and Salim Kumar have different political views, there is strong bond of friendship between us.”

Actor Subheesh, Director M Mohanan and Karayi Rajan were present on the occasion.
