Kannur: In an apparent criticism of Syro Malabar Church Thalassery Archbishop Mar Joseph Pamplany’s “rubber politics,” Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that the state will protect its secular nature and the endeavour of BJP will not succeed.

He was speaking here at a Communist Party of India (Marxist) programme commemorating its former leaders AK Gopalan and EMS Namboothiripad.

Sangh Parivar is trying to gain votes through threatening and appeasing. They are not ready to accept the minorities or embrace secularism. Any misdeeds can deceive some people. However, a state's emotion is to protect its secular nature at all costs.

Archbishop Pamplany triggered controversy on Sunday by stating that if the union government promised to increase the price of rubber procurement to Rs 300 per kilogram, the BJP's dearth of an MP from the southern state would be addressed.

Congress and CPM slammed Pamplany following his controversial comments. Both mentioned the alleged Sangh Parivar attacks on churches in north India and asked the priest not to deviate from the real issue.
