SNDP not to form political outfit

Posted on Feb 03, 01:24PM | UNI

Kozhikode, Feb 1 : The Sree Narayanan Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP), set up to propagate teachings of social reformer Sree Narayana Guru, today ruled out forming a political outfit in the state.

Talking to reporters here, General Secretary Vellappalli Natesan said at present 'we have no plan to set up a political arm.'

He said the SNDP was of the view that interference of community-based organizations in political affairs was not fair.

On another community-based outfit, Nair Service Society, demanding key position to Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee chief Ramesh Chennithala in the Ministry, Mr Natesan said 'Chennithala has not matured enough to hold the post of the Chief Minister in the State.'

He said refusal to accept Ministerial berth by Chennithala despite winning assembly seat while continuing as KPCC Chief 'is hollow.'
