Thiruvananthapuram: Union Information Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has flayed the CPM policy of preventing the Opposition,  including the BJP, from functioning  in Kannur district. Inaugurating a protest meeting at the martyr’s square at Palayam here on Thursday against the CPM violence in Kannur, he asked Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to control his party workers and restore  democracy.

He  said the people of Kerala had voted the CPM to power with the hope of maintaining peace and harmony. But unfortunately, even  children and women were facing  violence which cannot be tolerated.

 

“The BJP is in power at the centre and in 15 states.  The BJP has not prevented the CPM from working anywhere.   Mr Pinarayi is responsible for the state’s affairs and not  central CPM leaders like Sitaram Yechury and Prakash Karat,”  he said  and  stopped his speech mid-way when the customary prayer at Palayam Juma Masjid was relayed through the mike.

State BJP president Kummanam Rajasekharan said Pinarayi village was not the chief minister’s property.  “Mr. Vijayan is spreading false campaigns against national women’s commission chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam who visited the  village two days ago  to study the situation,” he said.
