യേശു വിമോചന നായകനെന്ന് വി എസ്

Old wine in a new bottle

                                                          Old wine in a new bottle
Sri Pinarayi Vijayan’s acceptance of Jesus Christ as a crusader against the malpractices in the society and the comparison of the church and the CPM is not  a new episode.It is only a replay of the drama they had  enacted with Dr Poulose Mar Poulose,the then Chaldian Bishop in Thrissur.He was portrayed as the real fighter for the suffering and oppressed  classes through his theory of Liberation Theology.They presented him as the representative of the Christians in hundreds of meetings so as to ensure the support of a t least a section of the churchgoers.But that did’nt take roots.They also caught hold of Sri Lonappan Nambadan to cash in on his humourous talks.Though he could unseat a ministry and become an MLA ,minister and  MP ,the community did not move with him.  What his predecessors could not do is being tried again by the present party secretary.
                                            A similar series of attempts were made by the late EMS to capture the Muslim votes through the formation of the Malappuram district and the Calicut  University.The CPM Malappuram meeting in recent years was also aimed at wooing the Muslims.Their allying with the INL and PDP was also not a principled one but only aimed at some immediate gains.
                                                                     This is really poor management of the party affairs.A party has to grow in strength through it’s undiluted policies and programmes.Credibility of the leaders is the supreme factor that dicides thesupport it gets from the masses.Different yardsticks for the partymen and others in matters of corruption or moral conduct will land the party into trouble.This will keep the corrupt and immoral leaders strongly attached to the party  as they can carry on with the misdeeds  without any fear of a punishment.But the public who are not blind or without senses are closely watching you.It is they who really dicide the future of the party.
           It is high time that the CPM does a rethinking of the present predicament faced by the party and takes genuine  and proper remedial action so that the people don’t lose their fath in the party.Otherwise any number of Central committee or PB or available PB shows will be of no help to the party.
