Kochi, Nov 7: Kerala BJP President P K Krishnadas Friday, Nov 7 alleged the CPI(M), part of the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) coalition in the State, was trying to derail investigation into terror links of some organisations in the state. Speaking to reporters here, Mr Krishnadas said ''eyeing the Muslim vote bank, the CPM was trying to appease the interests of Islamic organisations like National Democratic Front (NDF) and People's Democratic Party (PDP), which had alleged terror links, and the CPM was derailing the investigation into the terror links in the State.'' He alleged the CPM tasted success in the 2004 Parliamentary elections due to Muslim votes and presently the Communist Party feared it would lose those votes, if they pursued the investigation.
''As we have lost faith in the investigation initiated by the CPM-led LDF Government, we demand it should be handed over to a Central investigating agency like the CBI,'' he said.
''The NDF and PDP should be banned for their terror links and efforts to spread terrorism among the youth,'' he demanded.
Mr Krishnadas said the CPM and the Congress Party were equally at fault for ignoring intelligence reports that certain 'outfits' were recruiting people for terrorist activities in the state.
The party would organise demonstrations to collectorates across the State on December 11 demanding the government to impose ban on NDF and PDP and handover the investigation to a Central investigating agency, he quipped.
