    BJP Rebels to Join CPM on Tuesday


    The CPM has decided to welcome rebel BJP leaders and activists under the leadership of O K Vasu and A Asokan to its fold.

    Welcoming the rebels to the CPM, party district secretary P Jayarajan said on Friday that the leaders demonstrated “great courage” by quitting the BJP and severing ties with the RSS.

    “BJP’s former district president O K Vasu and secretary A Asokan and hundreds of BJP workers who formed NaMo Vichar Manch, a rebel platform within the party a few months ago, have expressed readiness to join ranks with the CPM. The rebel BJP leaders, along with 2,000 activists, will formally join the CPM at a function to be held at the Panur High School ground on Tuesday. CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan will inaugurate the programme at 5 pm,” Jayarajan said at a press meet here on Friday. Responding to a question, the CPM district secretary said that he did not believe that V S Achuthanandan was against giving party membership to the BJP rebels.

    The decision to welcome the BJP rebels was taken after democratic discussions within the party at local committees and in the district committee.

    The CPM leader also absolved the rebel leaders of all the alleged crimes committed against CPM workers. BJP-RSS groups had allegedly murdered 200 CPM workers in the state in four decades.

    We may be living in a gloom and doom individually because of the poor economy and lacklustre drift that India has been steered into as far as governance is concerned. but the tired blood is kept excited and invigorated by the political circus that enacts itself daily, day after day and with any end in sight.

    Well good for them - any problems in Gelf and Keralites will have to rush to other states for employment thanks to militant trade uNioNs nurtured and encouraged by Communists.

    Any info on why these dissidents decided to join the CPM...? The CPM has traditionally been anti-hindu and BJP's calling in the state started when CPM's anti-hindu stance was at its peak. I wonder what prompted these 2000 workers to quit BJP only to join the CPM.....

    The emblem itself was designed when INC was in power in 1962, till then they used the old british emblem. I think changing something like the emblem after communists came into power wouldve been a very petty move, and lost them more votes in the process, for no gains at all really.
    I havent seen this at all, atleast as far TN goes, where political parties have very close links with anti-brahmanism,aethism and communist movements and cpi parties are the most openly anti-hindu (never christian or muslim), and it's mostly about aryan vs dravidian, castes, general british era propaganda than proper research about the vedas/upanishads.

    Privately a lot of politicians (of the dmk and admk) visit temples believe in astrology etc, but for most part TN politics is devoid of religion, only since the Coimbatore blasts has there been some minority appeasement (and things that come with it).

    Anti-Brahmanism is pro-Hinduism. That is the reason why the communists are the ones who truly understand and appreciate the Vedas. Most of the "pioneers of Hinduism," aka RSS, believe in posturing.

    Communism died long time ago...a failed ideology..impractical and unimplementable....CPM is old and delapidated party on death bed....may be a few more years left for it to stop breathing.

    @sob,

    If you want to address me, use the at-the-rate-of symbol. I don't find sneaky tactics particularly amusing.

    Your post, consisting of four words, was extremely helpful. Thanks!
