Communist Kerala CM praises China And Slams The Move Of Isolating It

Days after CPM’s Kerala secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan’s remarks praising China raked up a controversy, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan echoed the sentiments on Saturday when he praised China as an emerging superpower and hit out at the Centre for supporting US and Israel.

“Globally, there is an effort to isolate China and RSS wants an axis comprising US, Israel and India, which is against our earlier foreign policy that was based on anti-imperialism,” Vijayan said at a party function in Kannur.

In the backdrop of the recent tussle between CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury and his predecessor Prakash Karat, Vijayan reiterated support to the latter’s line saying, “Our stand is that we have to bring together all secular forces on one platform to defeat BJP, but that should not be by making any electoral alliance or understanding with Congress.”

The UDF has collapsed in the state and Kerala Congress(M) and JD(U) have already left the front, he said.

“Resisting BJP is of utmost importance but that will be possible with a proper alternative force that has been formulated on the basis of clear policies. But just tying up an alliance is of no use,” he said, adding that such a platform should take up people’s issues and stick to a secular standpoint.

    Kerala is just one state of India and it can not dictate the national policy to all the other states of the Union. China has not shown courtesy and fellow feeilings towards India, irrespective of who governs our country. It is our internal matter entirely.
    Let kerala state hold a plebesite among its own citizens and ascertain if the people there endorse the CM of Kerala inthe present situation.Then it should come at the National level to dictate a pro-China policy. If other states follow Kerala fine. Otherwise the Centre can come in and save the Union of India from such a dissent. National security can not be adversely affected by one state of the Union.
