Pinarayi Vijayan during the inauguration of ninetieth anniversary of Guruvayur Satyagraha

Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that many people are still keeping the ‘Kuruvadi’ (a short stick) that was used to beat AKG during the time of the Guruvayur Satyagraha. He added that even after 90 years of this Satyagraha, some people are still trying to wipe out certain sections of Kerala from the country itself by using the old method of the aristocrats. He was inaugurating the 90th anniversary of Guruvayoor Satyagraha online.

"Some people conspired to kill Gandhiji who arrived to address the gathering during the Guruvayur Satyagraha. Even after Gandhi was assassinated, they still tries to abolish Gandhian values ​​and ideas," said the CM.

He also said that the 90th Guruvayur Satyagraha celebrations should be considered as a warning to Keralites against these people. CM also inaugurated the golden jubilee celebrations of the Guruvayur temple renovation.

CPM put forth AKG by pushing K Kelappan: KC Venugopal

Congress MP KC Venugopal claimed that CPM has denied the real hero of Guruvayur Satyagraha, K Kelappan and put forth AKG who was just a volunteer captain. He was inaugurating the 90th anniversary celebration of Guruvayur Satyagraha organised by the district Congress committee.

He also added that CPM doesn’t have any claim on the Satyagraha and Congress will not permit anyone to manipulate the history. The Satyagraha happened long back before the CPM party was formed. Narendra Modi who glorifies Savarkar and Pinarayi Vijayan who hijacked the Satyagraha are two sides of the same coin, he said.
