SNDP will neither support nor oppose anyone during bypolls: Vellappally Natesan
Konni: Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP) will neither support nor oppose anyone, said its general secretary Vellappally Natesan here on Sunday.
Speaking to Mathrubhumi News, Vellappally Natesan added that Kodiyeri Balakrishnana’s statement that, reservation will be provided to financially underprivileged among the upper cast in government jobs, was only the CPM general secretary’s wish.
“The SNDP has not released any statement supporting the Left Democratic Front (LDF) or the United Democratic Front (UDF). The statement that SNDP is supporting the LDF in bypolls is baseless. SNDP has the same stance towards all political fronts. We are neither supporting nor opposing any of them,” Vellappally Natesan said.
“SNDP had to take a strong stance in Pala due to several reasons. As a general stance, SNDP has not released any statement supporting any political party. Nothing is going to change no matter who wins or loses the bypoll,” he added.
“Take the number of government employees according to their caste and one can understand which section receives prominence. Many people will make a lot of statements during elections. The government move to provide reservation to financially underprivileged among the upper cast in the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB) will not materialise because doing so will be unconstitutional,” Vellappally Natesan said.
