KANNUR: Strange things happen to politicians.Stranger still are the changing views of some of them about their political opponents, literally justifying that there are no permanent friends or enemies in politics.

Former BJP president K Raman Pillai, now heading his own ‘Jana Paksham,’ not only surprised but also shocked many by comparing PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madhani with sage Valmiki at a news conference here on Monday.

Valmiki, who was earlier savage Ratnakaran, did penance for all his deeds through `tapas.’ He became a ‘ maharshi’ after a long spell of meditation and wrote `Ramayana.’ Madhani who founded the ISS and later the PDP had done penance for all his wrongdoings through nine years of imprisonment.

The long period of incarceration had changed Madhani, Raman Pillai said justifying his association with the party founded by Madhani and the Left.

Incidentally, Raman Pillai who described the NDF as an anti-national outfit dismissed a question whether the PDP too was antinational as a mere allegation.

Raman Pillai said L K Advani wouldn’t become the Prime Minister of the nation as the BJP wouldn’t get majority in the polls.

`Jana Paksham’ state secretary K K Haridas was also present at the news conference.
