New Delhi: SNDP General Secretary Vellappally Natesan on Wednesday said that the unity of majority communities was necessary in Kerala.
He was talking to the media after meeting BJP chief Amit Shah here.
Asked about the meeting, Vellappally said he met Amit Shah to request him to name the proposed Central university in Kerala after Sree Narayana Guru. He also said that he discussed political affairs with the BJP chief.
“The SNDP has no ‘untouchability’ towards BJP. The matter is the majority communities have been neglected in Kerala. They will get justice only if they come together and work for their own good. The SNDP will cooperate with anyone who comes forward to protect our interests,” Vellappally said.
Asked about the outfit’s plan to cooperate with the BJP, the Ezhava leader said, “I am not mad to say we won’t work with the BJP. They are the party that rules the country.”
“The LDF government did not give us anything. But Oommen Chandy did help us in some way,” vellappally said.
He also said the SNDP would not form a political party in the State.
He met Amit Shah along with SNDP Yogam vice president Thushar Vellappally.
He was in the national capital to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the unveiling of the statue of R Shankar in Kerala. However, since the Prime Minister was busy with programmes following the demise of APJ Abdul Kalam, he decided to meet the BJP chief.
