Periya: Denouncing the violent politics, 65 CPM activists and sympathisers joined Congress in Kallyat. Relatives of slain youth congress activists Sarath Lal and Kripesh also joined the party.
They said the decision to join Congress was taken to denounce the violent politics. 65 people from 27 families were given party membership by DCC president Hakkim Singh in a meeting held at Kallyat.
Kozhikode DCC president Adv T Sidhique inaugurated the meeting.
However, CPM Periya local secretary N Balakrishnan said that Congress is doing fake campaigns by welcoming those people who were already members of the party and people who have no political stand.
