Kerala in the grip of CPM Facism

Kerala witnessed political ruckus Saturday over an attack on opposition leader Oommen Chandy at Kasargod, about 650 km from state capital Thiruvananthapuram.

The alleged CPI-M activists pelted stoned stones at Chandy and Congress activists while they were attending a party meeting at Uduma in Kasargod district. The Congress leaders had to cancel the function because of the attack. Chandy, however, escaped unhurt.

Reacting to the attack, Chandy said here that the incident "revealed the fascist face of CPI-M". He was speaking to reporters after attending a function by a Muslim religious organisation.

I wonder would CPM Blame this time for their Violence. Their usual scapegoat is Sangh Parivar Activists. Its only a few days back one of CPM party worker Jijesh was Killed in Kannur by unknown assailants, entire secular Media and CPM Machinery went on overdrive blaming angh Parivar. But senior police official after investigation disclosed that the RSS and BJP had no role in the murder and that it was the handiwork of NDF activists.

Hilarious: CITU and its effort to save Globe from Warming

Once upon there were two Left trade union leaders P K Ganguly and M K Pandhe, both deeply concerned with global warming. Burning with desire to Protect Mother Earth, Indian comrades wanted to participate in an international global warming conference to raise International Awareness on Global Warming. I being a Dimwit(read Non Communist) am still trying to figure out why they didnot start their work from India or what is CITU Leaders qualifications on Global Warming.

Finally, The prayers were answered, they were invited for a conference in London. (why is this love between CPM Leaders and UK, Karat did his studies from UK, Kerala Party Secretary's son is studying in UK etc etc...). The invite got the Centre for Trade Unions in India all excited so that decks were cleared for Ganguly to go to London and present a paper on global warming(talk about overconfidence).

But the journey to London remained elusive as the promised ticket to fly never arrived even though the CITU was ready to roll. It is then they realized  that so-called conference was a con job. This left left the torchbearers of the downtrodden poorer by 301 pounds or Rs 25,000. A paltry amount for the Multi Million Organisation but leaves a Large question mark on the Intelligence of the people.

The comrades are not only red faced and very angry they now want justice against cyber crime and want the Ministry of External Affairs to step in for help.

"We will be very careful now. They are targeting us and if necessary we will involve the Interpol," says one comrade.

Kerala CPM Infighting Spills over to celluloid

In a U-turn from the great Indian style of matinee idols grabbing political seats, in Kerala, it is CPM Political Leaders who are Hogging Celluloid Limelight.

Now rival CPM Leaders Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan and party’s state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan are using celluloid to sway indecisive party workers. Latest Movies being ‘Of the People’ and ‘Roudram’ running in cinemahouses this week.

It was `Of the People’ ’ that was released first. `CM’(read Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan)  was the hero for idealistic youngsters, it told viewers. And also that his crusade of evicting `land mafia’ in Munnar was tripped by a big bad man(read party’s state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan) in his own party.

Pat came the reply in the form of `Roudram’, a Mammoty-starrer. Roudram’s hero makes it a point to laud the late Chief Minister EK Nayanar to skies, smartly drowning his successor LDF CM( read Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan) in unflattering light. There is also reference to `a CM’s son’s role’ in fixing the ongoing Cybercity land deal in Kochi. Predictably, both films wear their disclaimers right, but nobody is fooled over what they say. Incidentally Mamooty is in the Board of CPM Run Kairali TV Channel.

Perhaps, Taking cue from party meet scheduled to be held in Kottayam from February 11 to February 14(where CM VS Achuthanandan is expected to meet his Waterloo),  Of the People’ is at a loss for crowds. `Roudram’, on the other hand, has the party workers beating the Mammotty fans associations in keeping the cinema houses full.
