Antony should break silence: George

By Our Staff Reporter

KOTTAYAM, MARCH 28. The Kerala Congress(S) leader P.C. George has asked the former Chief Minister A.K. Antony to break his silence over the reported statement of the RSS chief, K. Sudarshan, on vote-sharing between the United Democratic Front (UDF) and Hindutva forces during the last Assembly election.

Speaking to presspersons here today, Mr. George alleged that many of the candidates fielded by the UDF, especially the Congress and the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), during the election, were, in fact, representatives of communal organisations, masquerading as party candidates. During the last Assembly election, while the Left Democratic Front (LDF) had taken an open stand against communal forces, the then UDF leader (Mr. Antony) had kept a studied silence on the issue. After coming to power too, his policy of `soft Hindutva' had led to uneasiness among the minorities. Now, the statement of the RSS leader has made it clear that Mr. Antony's silence and later his attitude towards the Hindutva forces was in exchange for the votes shared during the election.
