Denying the Congress party’s ‘ideological position’, senior party leader KV Thomas attended a national seminar of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and praised Kerala Chief Minister and CPI-M leader Pinarayi Vijayan.
At the seminar, KV Thomas said that when he had two thoughts on whether he would attend the event, the Chief Minister gave him the right advice.
CPI-M organized a seminar on Center-State relations in Kannur as part of the 23rd Party Congress. KV Thomas attended the seminar despite warnings of action by the KPCC president regarding his participation in the CPI-M event.
Meanwhile, without naming the KPCC president, CM Pinarayi Bijayan has dug a hole in him and said: “We have invited Professor KV Thomas as a representative of the Congress party. Even now he is participating as the leader of the Congress. Some people said they would cut off his nose [a colloquial saying] But he is still running as a Congress leader. Some people announced that he would not participate. We knew nothing would happen and [now] He is here as a Congress leader. “
On the other hand, KV Thomas gave a message to his colleagues that “if you take the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, you should participate in such a national program which is against the policy of the Center”.
KV Thomas says he is happy and proud to be part of the seminar.
“I came here as a congressman, from a congressional family. When I see all of you I think the decision to come here, to attend this seminar was right. I believe that my colleagues will understand that my participation in this event has become a force for Congress as well, “said Thomas.
Thomas says his party strongly opposes the Vijayanagara government’s ambitious Silver Line Semi-High Speed Rail Corridor project.
“It remains to be seen whether what I have said in terms of development is good for the country and the state. If so, we should go together for the project, for development, regardless of who came up with the project. I’m not blindly supporting any project. If there is a problem or error in K-Rail, it should be resolved without opposition as Pinarayi has brought victory. “
Thomas Pinarayi also called Vijayan “a good Chief Minister of the country”.
