via HK Correspondent published on January 14, 2006

Kochi : Assembly election is on the doorsteps, roads of Kerala is congested with political yatras by various parties. The political mercury is on high and now the climate also getting hotter after the starting of utharayana. However, among them, one yatra named Rashtra Raksha Sanchalan is an exception and it defer only because of the message, which the yatra is spreading that is unity and integrity of our nation.


The main opposition party Communist Party of India (Marxist) is leading a yatra towards the capital of state. The yatra leader Pinarayi Vijayan, state secretary of the party and who himself declared secretly as the next chief minister of Kerala is now very near to his destination. Though he stated his aim is to project the defects of state’s development he is very actively discussing the political day-by-day scenarios in the state. Moreover, he is making his political outlook towards his opponents in his own party and the allied parties in the Left Democratic Front, which his party is leading. His yatra and rallies in the evening on all days attracts very huge crowd, obviously his party is one among the strongest one and is organized in a cadre style. But what the message he is spreading among his cadres and people of Kerala? Those eras- forget all past of the communist movement, forget the cruel days of emergency, make friendship with congress veteran leader K.Karunakaran, for making strong this unholy alliance get ready to say goodbye to the left unity if necessary, and anyhow grab power in the state to fulfill the aspiration of his group in the CPM.


Just before CPM leader started his yatra son of K.Karunakaran and Democratic Indira Congress state president K.Muraleedharan reached capital by leading an all Kerala rally urging the people of Kerala to defeat United Democratic Front-UDF, which was his earlier political forum. He has followed Ramesh Chennithala, the state Congress president who completed a Kerala Yatra for enforcing his new position in party and attempted to prove that he is a good material for a chief ministerial candidate for UDF. Now youth congress president A.P.Anilkumar on the road to show the strength of youth movement and of course is election propaganda. Indian Union Muslim League also planned a statewide march but later it converted into district level rallies and that will take place very shortly.


All opposition and ruling parties in the state  would be on the roads of Kerala very soon because assembly election is very near. But the interesting part is that nobody is taking care of the nation or the state. Therefore, the Rashtra Raksha Sanchalan is an exception to these road exercises. The Sanchalan proclaim the aim of their mission as Rashtra Suraksha.


Political mercury in the state is marking high on day-by-day basis. Earlier there was a perception that LDF is going to be the ruling party by next election. Political pandits predicted that LDF will get at least 100 seats out of 140. But meanwhile the trend was in favor of UDF. Now the trend is in a mixed way. No body can predict the result of next election. Both the fronts are facing serious internal fighting. The big brother CPM in the LDF is going forward with their secret plans and projects. They are ready to wreck the left front ship for making an alliance with former congress leader K.Karunakaran. CPI  raised their voice against the style of functioning of CPM. Smaller parties like RSP are also raising objections to the line of CPM. Moreover, the state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan is facing serious political threat from his own party opponent group leader V.S.Achuthnandan.


The ruling front UDF is also not in a good position. There are very serious move against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and a new group alignment is taking place with in the Congress party. The smaller parties in the front are getting ready to change over to other political forum. And the people of the state will witness high political dramas in the coming months.
