Kerala Congress issues notice to former MP who praised PM Modi for following Gandhian values in governance

The state Congress chief also said the party will constitute a committee to study the social media post made by Abdullakutty

A Congress leader in Kerala has come under the fire of the party for praising PM Narendra Modi. The Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee saw red when one of its own leaders, former MP A P Abdullakutty in a Facebook post praised PM Narendra Modi for the BJP-led NDA’s massive victory in the Lok Sabha election.

Congress’ R Chennithala said that KPCC has decided to call for explanation from him. It’s not acceptable to the party, if he’ll not give a proper reply, disciplinary action will be taken, said the Congress leader.

Moreover, Mullapally Ramachandran, the president of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee, confirming that Kannur DCC has already submitted a complaint against the Facebook post of Abdullakutty added that stringent action would be taken against the former MP. The state Congress chief also said the party will constitute a committee to study the social media post made by Abdullakutty.

Another Congress leader, K Muraleedharan, said Abdullakutty’s remarks were wrong as no Congress worker can praise Modi. “There is no compromise on this matter,” he added.

Moreover, KPCC member M A Rohit unleashed a scathing attack on him saying, “Such bhaktas (devotees) should not be allowed to stay in a big political institution like the Congress, and they should be thrown out”, he wrote on Facebook. “I have felt that Abdullakutty is a man who always cosies up to authority. He cosies up to that side under the guise of the development. But it should not be at the cost of the Congress…..If you plan to go, go immediately to your old tent or Modi’s tent..for us, both are equal.”

Congress leader AP Abdullakutty from Kerala had on Tuesday courted controversy by praising PM Modi and attributing BJP’s landslide victory to his ethos and good governance. He had said that Modi had adopted Gandhian values which contributed to his success.

Abdullakutty joined the Congress after he was elected to Parliament from Kannur in 1999 and 2004. Prior to joining the Congress party, he was with the CPIM, which had sacked him in 2009 for praising Modi, who was then the chief minister of Gujarat.

In a Facebook post, titled “On Narendra Modi’s impressive victory”, Abdullakutty opinioned that BJP’ victory was the acceptance of Modi’s development agenda. He said the secret of the PM’s success was that he had adopted Gandhian values. He also hailed the centre’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (SBA), which envisages cleaning up India’s cities, towns and rural areas and to eliminate open defecation through construction of household-owned and community-owned toilets.

“PM Modi has reflected Mahatma Gandhi’s word that ‘when you develop a policy, you should remember the face of the poorest in his rule’. Swachch Bharath and Ujwala Yojana are examples of this.” said the former MP from Kerala’s Kannur.

He further called out political critics and leaders for castigating PM Modi and said that they should deliberate on the reasons behind the thumping victory of the BJP in national elections.

Prime Minister Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) registered a landmark victory in the recently held Lok Sabha polls by winning 303 seats in the 543-member lower house.
