INL leadership hits out at Salam

Special Correspondent

‘Personal motive behind merger move'

Kozhikode: Indian National League (INL) State president S.A. Puthiavalappil has alleged that party dissident and MLA P.M.A. Salam's sole aim in campaigning for merger of the INL in Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) was to become an MLA in the next State Assembly also.

In a joint statement here on Thursday, Mr. Puthiavalappil and all-India secretary Ahammed Devarcoil also alleged Mr. Salam was “attempting to create an impression that he enjoys strong support in INL's district councils for his move to merge in IUML.”

His only aim was to impress upon the IUML leadership that he enjoyed support of INL followers as it was necessary to strengthen his claim to be fielded as a candidate in the coming Assembly polls, the INL leaders alleged. “ The pro-merger group [in the INL] is already disappointed to find that a vast majority did not want the party to merge in the IUML. The IUML leadership has also realised there are not many supporters in the INL for Mr. Salam's merger. To strengthen his bargaining power for a ticket to contest the Assembly elections with the IUML support, Mr. Salam is planning to float another party,” they alleged.
