NDF seeks ban on Modi

Special Correspondent

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The National Development Front (NDF) has asked the Government to stop Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi from visiting Kerala. Mr. Modi is scheduled to visit the State capital to attend the Hindu Maha Mela being organised by the Sangh Parivar on January 29.

Front general secretary Nasaruddeen Elemaram told a news conference here on Wednesday that the NDF had petitioned the Chief Minister, Home Minister, Leader of the Opposition and leaders of various parties urging them to take steps to prevent a major crisis by stopping Mr. Modi from coming to Kerala. Mr. Modi, he pointed out, is not coming to the State in his capacity as a Chief Minister to participate in any official programme, but to participate in a programme being organised by the Sangh Parivar.

Describing Mr. Modi `the strongest spokesman of Hindu fanaticism' in India today, Mr. Nasaruddeen said it would be a shame for Kerala, being ruled by the Left, if he were to visit the State.

Mr. Modi, he said, had been denied entry into Kerala during the United Democratic Front rule and to several western countries following the large-scale killing of Muslims in Gujarat.
