BJP intellectual cell to engage with larger society

BJP intellectual cell to engage with larger society

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Bringing national general secretary Subramanian Swamy and controversial leader Sakshi Maharaj to a function organised under the aegis of the intellectual cell of the party in Kochi on Saturday, the BJP is unleashing a campaign to engage with larger society in the state.

The programme is aimed at taking the activities of the cell beyond the four walls of the party to address ideological issues rather than day-to-day affairs. Intellectual cell state convener T G Mohandas told Express the BJP was an ideologically-driven party and it was time to restate it for the benefit of the party workers and the general public.

“The party is taking up several issues of mundane life. But it is time to take up ideological issues which could benefit the party cadre as well as the people at large,” he said. According to the intellectual cell, the ruling CPM in the state has been engaged in an illicit tie-up with “anti-national forces”.

We at the BJP are concerned about the CPM developing a bonhomie with the forces known for its anti-India stance and divisive activities. CPM has no qualms about colluding with evangelists. That’s why the government reacted violently when an unauthorised cross was removed by the Revenue Department at Munnar,” Mohandas said.The programme to be attended by Swamy and Maharaj will take up issues regarding CPM’s minority appeasement. 

“The government’s appeasement of Christian evangelists and its proclaimed projects like starting Islamic Bank in the cooperative sector will also be discussed. Speakers will shed light on anti-Hindutva forces from minority communities masquerading as CPM activists unleashing anti-India and anti-Hindutva campaigns,” he said.

BJP veteran to share dais after over a decade
For the first time in over a decade, BJP veteran P P Mukundan will be given a seat on the dais along with the national leaders and state president Kummanam Rajasekharan. It is as a mark of respect to Mukundan that the intellectual cell invited him.
