THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Hindu parliament chairman P.R. Devadas has contradicted C.P. Sugathan, saying no outfit from the umbrella organisation has decided to quit Navothana Samrkshna Samti or the Renaissance Protection Committee.
He said Mr Sugathan was on his way out and his claims are false. Mr Devadas said no one has hijacked the Renaissance Committee and Hindu parliament will continue to support the forum. "There was a move to remove him from the committee because of his statements which were against the objectives of the samithi. On the verge of ouster, he has made these statements," he said.
The Hindu parliament chairman said the objective of the Renaissance Protection committee was not to send women to Sabarimala temple. It is working for equal rights for all sections of society. "We believe in equal rights and a society where there is no hegemony of one section. We are promoting these values in the society," he added.
He said Mr Sugathan who is the general secretary of the Hindu Parliament was not capable of adding even a single person.
SNDP general secretary Vellapally Natesan and KPMS general secretary Punnala Sreekumar who are chairman and convenor of the committee respectively had on Friday categorically stated that the objective of the committee was not build a wider Hindu unity in the state. They hit out at Mr Sugathan for making baseless allegations.
They said Mr Sugathan had tried to create problems in the committee even earlier. "His ideas reflected Sangh Parivar ideology. On many occasions the committee had to seek his explanation for taking a position which was against the objectives of Navothana samithi," the leaders pointed out....
