Kannur | RSS State Prantha Karyavahak (General Secretary) P Gopalan Kutty today said they welcomed CPI(M) to lead the Sree Krishna Jayanthi Festivals however their conduct should not be against the sentiments of people and be within the cultural norms.
Talking to news persons here today , Mr Gopalan Kutty alleged the intention of CPI(M) was only to create planned disturbances and it was not in line to the emotions of the people and sentiments related to the festivals. He said the CPI(M) had organized Ganeshothsavam to mock at the festival in Kannur and they went in procession for immersion of the Ganesh idols by carrying the party flags and the images of  Che Guevara.
RSS welcomed the CPI(M) jointly organizing Sree Krishna Jayanthi celebration on September 5 in Kannur. For the past 35 years the festival was being conducted in Kannur above all political considerations under the Balagokulam and people from all walks of life cooperated with them.
However, this year, there is an  indication of well planned strategy of the party to disturb the festival, he alleged.
The party should allow the conduct of the festival in its usual way and prevent politics at temple festival. RSS had sought permission to hold the Sree Krishna Jayanthi and procession associated with it.
The government and District Administration will positively consider their request. In this regard they contacted the Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala and District Collectot P Balakiran.
