Using Quran as shield will result in a severe setback than Sabarimala: NK Premachandran warns CPM
New Delhi: NK Premachandran MP warned that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan using holy Quran as shield to escape from the gold smuggling and drug cases have to face a deadlier setback from devotees than the Sabarimala issue.
CM and Kodiyeri are speaking the language of communalism. Trying to suppress UDF would boomerang on them, Premachandran said in a press meet hosted by UDF MPs on Saturday. CM is insulting Islamic faith and Quran along with cultural Kerala, he added.
K Muraleedharan MP said that the issue was not bringing Quran from UAE, but protocol violations and the difference in weight of the parcel.
He also said that Congress MPs didn’t respond when a BJP MP from Bengaluru criticized Kerala government in Parliament, as they are not interested in any association with BJP.
CPM is providing a golden opportunity for BJP to grow roots in Kerala with these issues. Muraleedharan also alleged an internal link between CPM and BJP in Kerala.
MPs Kodikunnil Suresh, Benny Behnan and ET Muhammad Basheer also criticized Kerala Government on the issue.
