K Surendran invited me to BJP, says Thottathil Raveendran
Kozhikode: CPM leader and former district mayor Thottathil Raveendran on Tuesday revealed that he was invited to BJP by party state president K Surendran.
Speaking to Mathrubhumi News, Raveendran said he responded to Surendran that he was a theist and communist. I have been a member of CPM for the past of 52 years. I can’t take any other stance, he added.
Surendran invited me considering my faith. But I can’t change like that one fine morning. Friendships and politics are different, Thottathil Raveendran further stated.
