Congress asks Muslim league not to use their flags in Rahul’s Wayanad campaign as it might harm prospects in North India: Report

Rahul Gandhi is expected to file his nomination from Wayanad on Thursday. He will also hold a roadshow as declared by Congress.

Since the Congress Party has decided to field President Rahul Gandhi from the ‘safe’ constituency of Wayanad in Kerala, the party has been trying hard not to let his candidature from this Hindu-minority constituency influence the equation in the North.

According to a report in Organiser, Congress workers have given strict instructions to Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) workers not to use the green Islamic flags during Rahul Gandhi’s campaign as it might harm their prospects in North India. Indian Union Muslim League is the second largest party in the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF).

According to the report, the instructions are being spread through social media like WhatsApp groups, Facebook and Twitter. Congress workers are appealing to the IUML workers not to bring the green flags to the rallies as it might go ‘against’ the party in the North. Rahul Gandhi is expected to file his nomination from Wayanad on Thursday. He will also hold a roadshow as declared by Congress.

The IUML is a successor of the All India Muslim League that had demanded the partition of India and was successful in doing so. The party was found involved in the planning as well as the execution of the brutal Marad massacre in Kerala in 2003 as per the report of Justice Thomas P Joseph Commission which was set up to investigate the incident. The report had declared the massacre as “a clear communal conspiracy, with Muslim fundamentalist and terrorist organisations involved”.

Rahul Gandhi’s decision to contest from the Wayanad constituency has not gone down well with the CPI(M) which mocked Gandhi for his decision by calling him “Pappu”. CPI(M) leader and former Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan has also labelled the Gandhi scion as “Amul Baby”.
