NSS Has a Secular Mind, Says Pinarayi Vijayan

Thiruvananthapuram: CPI(M) leader and polit buro member Pinarayi Vijayan, on Friday, stated that the Nair Service Society (NSS) is proving that it is a secular organization.

Talking to the Mathrubhumi News channel, Pinarayi Vijayan said there have been efforts during the Vajpayee era to bring NSS and the NDP into the Sangh Parivar fold. The RSS had also tried to do that. However, all those efforts were in vain.

In the present day situation too, even as SNDP Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan has moved closer to the BJP, the NSS has stood its stand, proving that the organization has a secular mind, Vijayan added.

Talking in connection with the forthcoming election scenario, Pinarayi Vijayan was of the opinion that the Left Democratic Front (LDF) will win hands down.

Adding that the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) is in a shambles, he said the people of the state would come forth and rewrite political alliances. He also stated that the LDF will not close the door on parties wishing to ally with it.
