The Schedule Caste Morcha of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to organise massive protest against CPM for abusing a dalit leader of All India Students’ Federation (AISF), the students’ wing of CPI. The SC Morcha President in Kerala, Shajumon Vattekkadu said that the organisation will hold the protest with the slogan of ‘SCs not the slaves of CPM’. He also slammed the CPM calling out their ‘fake affection towards SCs’.
Shajumon told the media that CPM leaders are still practising untouchability and this is reflecting in the action of SFI, their students’ wing.
The SC Morcha president also questioned the silence of the intellectuals in Kerala who are very active when some unfortunate incidents happen in other parts of the country. He also said that their pens are kept inside the state office of CPM.
