Krishnadas:An efficient organiser

published on November 5, 2006

PK Krishnadas – unanimously elected the State president of the BJP on Sunday – is described as an influential leader and an efficient organiser.


A teacher by profession, he joined the party through the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha.


Krishnadas has been general secretary of the State BJP for the last six years.


He has also worked as the State secretary, vice-president and president of the Yuva Morcha. His major activities as a Sangh Parivar activist included the 35-day-long Kerala Raksha Yatra that he led from Kasaragod to Thiruvananthapuram.


He was brutally attacked by the police in 1988 when he led a march to the State secretariat protesting against the ‘anti-people’ policies of the then EK Nayanar-led Left front government.


He had contested for the Lok Sabha from Kasaragod and Vadakara constituencies and also to the Assembly from Thalassery against CPI(M) candidate Nayanar.


Krishnadas, who started public life as a dedicated swayamsevak in the trouble-torn Kannur district, has all along enjoyed the full support that of the Sangh and that support did not fade when he was at the helm of affairs at the Yuva Morcha.


Krishnadas, born in 1963 at Peringalam, Kannur, has served as a teacher at the UP School in Kuruvanchery, Valayam in Kozhikode district.
