Kannur: KPCC President K Sudhakaran sparked a controversy here on Wednesday after he revealed that he had "supplied men to guard RSS sakhas (branches)" in Kannur’s Edakkad, Thottada and Kizhunna.

Speaking at the memorial meeting of CMP leader MV Raghavan, Sudhakaran said, “There was a time when CPM tried to destroy RSS sakhas. I protected them. I don’t have any inclination towards the RSS or its goals. I was motivated by the feeling that it is not good for a democrat to watch fundamental rights being violated in a place where democratic rights exist.”

“I have not cooperated with or supported RSS activities in any manner. But, political freedom and freedom of expression are birth rights of every citizen. It must be sustained,” he added.
