Sadas irrespective of party affiliation: CPI



Daily Thanthi



KANNUR: Buoyed by the huge turnout for the state government’s outreach programme -- Nava Kerala Sadas -- the CPI(M) said everyone was welcome to take part in it irrespective of their political affiliations. CPI(M) state secretary M V Govindan said leaders from any party or alliance, even the UDF, can come for the programme. He said the government did not address any leader of any political party, instead it clearly said anyone who is interested can come. His remarks assume significance amidst speculations that the ruling Left in the state is trying to woo Congress-ally Indian Union Muslim League. Govindan also said the programme has only begun and by the time it reaches the southernmost district of Thiruvananthapuram, the turnout would be massive. The Congress has also alleged that the programme was being used as a stage to denounce the opposition at state expense.
