Kozhikode: Ousted IUML leader and its former state secretary KS Hamsa has come against national general secretary PK Kunhalikutty.
According to Hamsa, Kunhalikutty is making pacts with BJP and CPM. " Kunhalikutty is in a secret friendship with BJP. He can neither criticise BJP nor Pinarayi (Pinarayi Vijayan) as he has fears about Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Vigilance, respectively," Hamsa said.
Hamsa maintained that he was expelled from the party for questioning power greed inside and ED action on Hyderali Thangal. He added that Sadiq Ali Shihab Thangal is under Kunhalikutty's influence.
He claimed that a meeting was held between a IUML MLA and the Kerala RSS leadership. He said that the meeting was held to rope in the Muslim League into the Left fold. This, he said, would help the BJP in the long run in Kerala politics. It was the RSS who initiated this discussion, Hamsa added.
Earlier on Saturday, RSS Prantha Karyavahak (State Secretary) PN Easwaran said that the RSS as part of its outreach programme had held discussions with a IUML MLA. The RSS leader had also said that the Muslim League was a secular political party and was against terror activities but added that they would have certain communal interests.
However, IUML state general secretary PMA Salam had said that their's was a secular political party and it does not have any truck with the RSS.
Hamsa further raised many allegations against the party and Kunhalikutty. Hamsa claimed that many insiders wish him to be in leadership roles.
Hamsa was expelled from the party the other day for violation of party discipline. Meanwhile, his statements come at a time when reports say Kunhalikutty's influence ensured PMA Salam's continued tenure as party general secretary.
