Thiruvananthapuram: The CPM has forwarded a letter making it clear the stand to be taken towards the NSS (Nair Service Society). The party workers are directed to make interventions so that the community organisations’ members are not influenced with the extreme anti-communist views of the NSS general secretary.

This has been explained in the letter given by the party state committee at the election review meeting directing the actions to be taken by each unit of the party. The community organisations took a pro-communist stand in the election in the assembly election. The Christian-Muslim unity did not turn out to be beneficial for the UDF.

However, the NSS was not cooperative to the LDF. But, the party continued to keep calm even after they made provocative remarks. So, the progressive thinkers within the NSS supported the LDF, the CPM evaluated. The government’s activities helped to keep other communities close to the Left wing with their welfare policies.

There were attempts to unify the Muslim community and make them supportive to the UDF. However, the Sunni Kanthapuram faction sabotaged the move and they supported the LDF. Other Muslim groups did not take an open stand. Some Muslim candidates were fielded as independent candidates and this was beneficial.

The SNDP was against the LDF in 2016 and they also tried to attract more people to the BJP. But they corrected the stand. BDJS that was supporting the BJP has become weak and the BJP is trying to attract their members. CPM has directed to stop the move and try to bring them to the Left wing.
