PC Vishnunath, MLA from Chengannur, had alleged that Balagokulam Shobyatras could sow the seeds of communalism among the youngsters and asked the parents to be careful about it.
           Balagokulam has demanded an unconditional apology from Congress MLA PC Vishnunath for his derogatory comments regarding Ashtamirohini Shobayatras organized by the organization every year.
In a statement issued on Saturday, Balagokulam state organize V Harikumar pointed out that the celebrations have become part and parcel of Kerala society over the years, and many political leaders including those from the Congress have participated in the festivities to mark the birth of Lord Krishna.

           Balagokulam statement also pointed out that the organization, even recognized by the United Nations, works in the state with the support of people from all walks of life. Balagokulam state general secretary  V Harikumar said that P C Vishnunath MLA who had insulted Sreekrishna Jayanti celebrations should offer an apology.In a statement here, Harikumar said that large number of people from all sections of society participate in the Sreekrishna Jayanthi celebrations. He pointed out that it was Chief Minister Oommen Chandy who inaugurated the jayanti celebrations at Puthupally in 2005.This year, K Muralidharan MLA inaugurated the  celebrations here. K Karunakaran, Therambil Ramakrishnan and many other Congress leaders had participated in the celebrations in the past. “We don’t know why Vishnunath made an unwarranted statement against Balagokulam and Sreekrishna Jayanti,” he said. 

          The organization pointed that Vishnunath made these comments without any provocation and asked the Congress party to explain their stand on the issue. Political observers feel that the MLAs statement is not unintentional or inadvertent as it comes out at a time when efforts are on by social organizations like SNDP and NSS to forge Hindu unity in the state that could prove to be a setback for MLA like Vishnunath.


we should show him his right place in coming elections
