Indians recently heard some ridiculous reasons for defeat in elections from political parties who lost the battle against the BJP. Irom Sharmila’s justification given for her demoralizing defeat in recently held Manipur election is equally absurd. Her uninformed comments made during her Thiruvananthapuram visit may trigger anger among family members of BJP workers who lost their loved ones due to political clashes in Kerala.

On March 20, Irom Sharmila interacted with journalists in Thiruvananthapuram. She visited the city and also met CPI (M) leaders as well as Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The activist plans to spend some time with the tribal population in Palakkad district’s Attappadi Reserve Forest Area.

During the event, Irom spoke about why she opposes the AFSPA–Armed Forces Special Powers Act in Manipur and wants it to be repealed. She thanked CPI (M) and other left outfits for supporting her in this matter. At one point, she claimed she has decided to quit politics, but her outfit-Peoples’ Resurgence and Justice Alliance (PRJA) will remain active.

Terming political situation in Kerala as ‘a ray of hope’ sounds barmy!

In her speech, Irom shared her opinion that politics in Kerala offered a ray of hope, while other states were under the influence of muscle and money power.  This is spurious logic and the point where the absurdity began in her speech.

Our constitution created with Dr. Ambedkar’s great contribution has given voting power to every citizen. State Governments have been formed with the help of democratic process. Thus, claiming that all other state elections except for Kerala are won with money and muscle may not prove to be appropriate.

Often referred as “next Kejriwal in the queue,” Irom claimed during the event that her intention is to protect democratic values and human rights. If so, why has she preferred to ignore all the political murders in Kerala and gave a super-honesty certificate to CPI (M) Government?

Kerala and WB report a maximum number of cases involving political clashes, mostly, victims are BJP workers.

 

In January this year, CPI (M) workers in Kerala attacked a DALIT BJP worker-Suresh and threw his ten-month-old baby out of the car. Leftist workers were later arrested by police and it was also confirmed that the workers already had similar political violence cases against them. Those behind Rohith Vemula and other Dalit protests did not even utter a word against CPI (M) goons who threw the baby out of the car because of political rivalry.  They probably did not show any interest because this Dalit was associated with the BJP.

Former RSS office bearer-Kundan Chandrawat had recently pointed out that more than 300 RSS Pracharaks have been murdered by CPI (M) in Kerala. In fact, 2016 alone saw the deaths of 31 BJP-RSS workers. It seems that Irom Sharmila is not bothered about all these deaths and such incidents are a ray of hope for democracy according to the human rights activist.

Irom says humans should show mutual honor and respect towards each other. Many people consider her an inspiration and a hero. Her 16 year struggle for Manipur is remarkable and she has won multiple awards for her work. But, why is it that she preferred to ignore political murders in Kerala? Is it that CPI (M) members can get away with brutal political murders because they support her propaganda? How can the government that failed to act on so many political murders offer a ray of hope? Killing political rivals is democracy’s murder. It’s unfortunate that even the Supreme Court and the Election Commission of India have turned a blind eye towards such incidents reported from Bengal and Kerala.

Anyway, getting back to the topic, people in Manipur have already shown her place to Irom Sharmila by giving her just 90 votes. CPI (M) won’t be able to purify itself from its sins with Irom’s certificate. Now, it’s up to the people to decide if the political scene in Kerala is a ray of hope for democracy or a black spot.
