Thiruvananthapuram: The communal atmosphere
in Kerala would turn worse if the government did not take
steps to put an end to the `drama` being enacted at Anwarssery
where PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madani was camping, Socialist
Janata (Democratic) president M P Veerendrakumar said today.
"What is happening at Anwarssery is a pre-scripted drama.
Madani, facing arrest in the Bangalore blasts case, is holding
press conference where prohibitory orders are in force. The
gunmen provided to him by the government escape by jumping the
wall. This is unheard of in Kerala," he said inaugurating the
Janata Construction and General Workers union here.
He wanted the government to explain the details it had
about Madani, who had been given protection by them till now.
Kerala government knew the details of NIA`s interrogation of T
Nazeer, on whose deposition Madani was enlisted as an accused
in the case, and was bound to explain it to the people.
The roots of the events unfolding now could be traced to
the tie-up between CPI-M and PDP in the last Lok Sabha
elections, Veerendrakumar said.
"Karnataka government says Kerala had offered to help
arrest Madani. While Madani pleads innocence, Kerala
government, which was protecting him, is silent on the details
in its possession about Madani," he said.
Unless the Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan stopped
the `double game` on the matter, the communal atmosphere in
the state would be vitiated, Veerendrakumar said.
