Kozhikode: KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala used a meeting held here to commemorate the death anniversary of the former KPCC president and Gandhian C.K. Govindan Nair to unleash an indirect attack on the Indian Union Muslim League on Saturday.
Inaugurating the meeting held at the DCC office, Chennithala said CKG had warned that Muslim League would become a liability to the Congress.
Chennithala said that CKG had earlier said that the IUML would demand more seats in the future, during the initial stages of coalition government.
Chennithala asserted the Congress party has suffered whenever it allowed divisive forces to cross the limit.
What CKG said at that time has become a lesson for the party now, he added.
“When CKG was the KPCC president, the Kozhikode DCC had entered into an alliance with the IUML for the city corporation election. When CKG arrived at the railway station, reporters asked him about the Congress-IUML pact. CKG said as KPCC president I am nullifying the alliance," Chennithala said.
"If we concede to their demand now they would ask for more seats in future. Kozhikode DCC president lost his post for striking the alliance with IUML," he added.
Electricity Minister Aryadan Mohammed, who was also present at the occasion, lauded the KPCC chief for his stand. “Chennithala has now become the true successor of CKG,” said the minister.
