Former DGP of Kerela TP Senkumar has openly praised PM Modi government and the works undertaken organisations associated with the RSS. TP Senkumar was removed as DGP in May 2016 soon after the Pinarayi Vijayan government came to power. The government’s move was slammed by Supreme Court and Senkumar was reinstated, subsequently.
As per a report in the Indian Express, TP Senkmar was speaking on Friday at a reception organized by Bharatiya Janta Party for leaders, who defected from other parties and joined them. He praised Seva Bharti, an NGO that was founded on the ideas propagated by Veteran Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh’s Sarsanghachalak Balasaheb Deoras in 1979.
The NGO is widely known for its contribution to the upliftment of people from economically marginalised communities. It has an active presence in 602 districts of the country. He said that he shall continue to participate in the NGOs activities in future. Senkumar admitted that he had been attending events organised by the Seva Bharti and will continue to do so in the future.
Senkumar praised PM Modi and his efforts to rejuvenate the country’s image abroad. He added that the Modi government should continue at the centre for another 10 years. He also added that if speaking the truth gets him branded as a Sanghi, then everyone should be one.
”There should be a continuation of the present regime at the Centre. Because of the Prime Minister(Modi), any Indian can travel with pride abroad”, the former DGP said.
He also asserted that he is currently part of Sree Dharma Pariplanana Yogam society, that works for the upliftment of Ezhava community of Kerela. He said that he has no plans to join BJP.
After retiring, Senkumar had stirred a controversy by his alleged anti-muslim remark. In an interview to a magazine, he had said that ‘Love Jihad’ is a fact. He had also said that out of 100 born children in Kerela, 42 were of the Muslim community, and added that it was high considering the fact that Muslims only consist 27% of the total population. He had warned about its implication on demography. The interview had invited a non-bailable case by cyber police under IPC section 153A for promoting enmity between the communities.
“Recently, I have been facing untouchability, which I hadn’t experienced in the past. So I thought I should end that. Hence, I came to attend this event to end that untouchability,” Senkumar said about attending the event.
