‘CPI (M) doesn’t believe in democracy: Naqvi

New Delhi: Taking serious note of the violence in Kerala’s Kozhikode district, Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday alleged that the Communist Party of India (Marxist) does not believe in democracy and is eventually witnessing a decline.

“The people should understand the kind of hatred that they are showing only proves they don’t believe in democracy, they don’t believe in the Indian Constitution. They have lost their mental stability. The CPI (M) has become a party of goons and that is why they are declining the world over,” he told ANI.

Naqvi also advised the CPI (M) not to fight its ideologically through violence.

In a yet another political faceoff in Kerala, three RSS workers and one BJP worker were allegedly hacked by a group of Communist Party of India (Marxist) workers in Kozhikode district.

The workers have been hospitalised after they suffered series injuries at the hands of more than 10 CPI (M) workers over political rivalry.

The incident comes in the wake of the ongoing tussle between the RSS and the CPI (M) in Kerala, as an RSS office was attacked last Thursday in the state.

The office was attacked hours after an RSS functionary announced a bounty of Rs. one crore on Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s head. (ANI)
