Vellapally’s BDJS won’t get symbol of ‘folded hands’
cancel

Thiruvananthapuram: The Election Commission has declined to allot the symbol of ‘folded hands’ to Vellapally Natesan’s newly floated party Bharat Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS).

According to sources, the commission took the decision as part of its guideline disallowing use of the same symbol by parties.

Earlier in the day, V.M Sudheeran said the Congress would approach the election commission against the BDJS’s ‘folded hands’ symbol for its similarity with his party’s symbol.

It was on Saturday Natesan launched his political party, which is created in a bid to create a third front in Kerala.

The ruling Congress and the opposition CPI-M had criticised him for allegedly promoting the cause of the BJP and RSS.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy termed the new party - Bharath Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS) - as the "B team of the BJP".

"It's going to be a recruiting agency of the Bharatiya Janata Party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and nothing beyond that. The ideology of Sri Narayana Guru has been ignored by him," Chandy told reporters.

State Congress president V.M. Sudheeran said Natesan was "promoting the teachings of (Nathuram) Godse".

"What I oppose is his new-found love for the politics of the RSS and Sangh Parivar. He should now stop saying anything about Sri Narayana Guru's teachings and ideology because he is now promoting the teachings of (Nathuram) Godse," Sudheeran said at a party function here.

Communist Party of India-Marxist politburo member Prakash Karat said in Kozhikode on Sunday that the new party was a "ploy of the BJP and RSS" and it would not have any political impact in the southern state.
