Thiruvananthapuram: Rahul Gandhi, MP and former president of the All India Congress Committee blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, the BJP and the RSS for last Saturday’s attack on his office at Kalpetta in Wayanad district. Gandhi said the attack was the outcome of the policy of hatred pursued by the Prime Minister, Home Minister, RSS and the BJP.
The Congress leader did not mention the CPI(M) or SFI even once while speaking to the media at Kalpetta. “The office was attacked by some children. I don’t have any anger or hostility towards them, They are children and acted in a haste without bothering about the consequences,” said Rahul Gandhi.
This is a clear signal of the secret alliance and match-fixing policy between Congress and the CPI(M) at the national level. Though the parties act in public as if they are sworn enemies, there is a strong secret and underhand dealing between the two parties against the BJP and the Hindus of the country.
Gandhi also said that there was a sense of anger and hatred prevailing all over the country and blamed the BJP and RSS for the same. “The culture of the Indian National Congress is to unify the people in a peaceful manner. Violence does not have any place in our plan of things,” said Rahul Gandhi.
The Wayanad MP was accompanied by Leader of the Opposition V D Satheeshan, KPCC President K Sudhakaran, former chief minister Oommen Chandi, AICC General Secretary K C Venugopal and other leaders of the party.
Kerala woke up on Friday to the news that the CPI(M) headquarters AKG Centre at Thiruvananthapuram has come under attack last night. An unidentified person riding a two-wheeler threw an explosive/cracker at the AKG Centre around 11.30 pm last night. There were no casualties or any untoward incidents. The CPI(M) cadre retaliated instantly by vandalising the Congress offices across the State. The statue of former prime minister Indira Gandhi was desecrated by the CPI(M) cadres at Alappuzha. E P Jayarajan, the convener of the LDF, had blamed Congress for the attack on the AKG Centre though by morning he toned down the intensity of his charges.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has constituted a high-level team of IPS officers and more than 1,000 cops to hunt down the persons behind the attack on the AKG Centre at Thiruvananthapuram.
Later in the day, Rahul Gandhi led thousands of people on a roadshow as a mark of solidarity with the people who want the scrapping of the Supreme Court verdict ordering every protected forest, national park and wildlife sanctuary across the country should have a mandatory eco-sensitive zone of a minimum one km starting from their demarcated boundaries.
Rahul Gandhi’s soft approach towards the CPI(M) is being seen as the emergence of a strong alliance between the comrades and the Congress (excluding Kerala).
