I will reveal more, says expelled CPI-M MPMarch 8th, 2009 - 7:11 pm ICT by IANS
Thiruvananthapuram March 9 (IANS) Expelled Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) MP A.P. Abdulla Kutty Sunday said he will expose the ideological contradictions in the party.
“The revelations will come at the appropriate time and right now I will just wait,” Kutty told IANS over the phone.
Kutty was suspended Jan 17 for hailing Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s development initiatives in an interview to a Malayalam TV channel.
Kutty later clarified that he did not approve of Modi’s “communal politics”.
Kutty alleged that his expulsion was a result of the ongoing feud between state CPI-M secretary Pinarayi Vijayan and Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan.
“If the party sees my case as indiscipline, then how many times they should have suspended state Minister for Cooperation G. Sudhakaran who has lashed out at Achuthanandan on more than one occasion,” Kutty said.
“Is speaking against hartals (shut downs) a crime? If they see it as a crime, then I will again speak,” added Kutty.
Asked about his future plans, he said, “As of now I will attend the interview for the Territorial Army at Bhopal. I am also told that I can request for a change of date for the interview.”
Asked if Congress leaders from Kannur are reaching out to him, the two-time MP from Kannur said: “It is only when you are part of a movement you can do something. As an individual I will be able to do nothing. The only job I know is that of a public activist and two things that Kannur lacks is peace and development. I will work for that but right now I prefer to keep my cards close to my chest.”
