Kerala currently has a Communist Party Government. Kerala became an independent State in the Indian Union in 1956, and in 1957, the first democratic Government in Kerala was formed by the Communist Party. Today, 65 years after the formation of the State, the journey of ‘Communist’ Kerala is narrated ahead…..
Who is the source of inspiration for the Communists of Kerala ?
Kerala is ruled by the Marxist Communist Party. As the name suggests, the party’s inspiration is Karl Marx. Our country is a democracy and political parties come to power through elections. As per the history of Communists around the world, the Communists do not face elections. They believe in the Communist philosophy of ‘the ‘path to power is through the bloody uprising of peasants and labourers’. Thus, not a single Communist Government in the world came to power by electoral victory until 1957; however in Kerala, the Communist Party came to power by winning the first assembly elections in 1957. The peculiarity of this party in Kerala is that the images of its local leaders or the national leaders of the party are not displayed on their propaganda material such as banners, posters, etc. The Congress claims that the pictures of everyone from Gandhi to Rahul Gandhi decorate their campaign material. Even the BJP’s campaign material carries pictures of everyone from Atal Behari to Amit Shah. Against this background, the Communists in Kerala are differently underlined. On their propaganda material, there are pictures of three leaders of the Communist revolution around the world. The first picture on various posters is of Che Guevara, the youth leader of the Communist revolution in Argentina. The second picture is a wall painted with joint photographs of Karl Marx, Friedrich Angle and Vladimir Lenin. Such posters and painted walls can be seen everywhere in the city of Cochin-Ernakulam and in addition, flags bearing the Communist Party’s hammer-sickle sign can be seen on the sidewalks and power poles.
Even after 75 years of independence, the Communist Party did not have any ideal personality to lead on a national expanse; that is why they are still blessed to have portraits of leaders from Germany, Russia and Argentina from overseas. Unfortunately, this shows their lack of nationalism.
‘Gulf Money’ is a main source of income
Kerala’s unemployment rate is much higher than India’s overall unemployment rate. Although there is 100% literacy, there are very few occupations because as soon as an industry is started, the flags of the so-called union of the Communist Party are hoisted there. They have a hooliganism of ‘less work and more demands’. Industries do not flourish in such a state. Therefore, educated Keralites do not get jobs ! Most of the educated Keralites accept jobs in the Gulf countries. In the Gulf countries, Keralites mainly work as nurses, drivers, technicians, etc. There are 4 international airports in small Kerala to facilitate their overseas travel. Today, 3.5 million Keralites live in the Gulf. Because of them, the State of Kerala gets foreign income and its economy runs on this exchange. Kerala’s economy is dependent on foreign exchange, despite the lack of industry. The contribution of Communists in Kerala is zero.
Bullying by coolies dressed in blue attire
Coolies wearing blue dresses can be seen everywhere in Cochin-Ernakulam cities. These people are called ‘Nokku Coolie’. If any industrialist wants to unload goods in a vehicle, he has to engage these coolies. Even if you unload the material yourselves, these coolies need to be paid. Even if the owner of material sees them, there is a ‘Communist’ evil practice of giving them whatever money they ask for. A group of well-educated youngsters, dressed in blue coolie dresses, walk around the city and collect money. No one opposes them as they have the protection of the Communist Party. This is a vivid example of how a Communist State runs.
Communists enjoy monopoly in Kerala
Most Hindus in Kerala vote for the Communist Party. I asked a Hindu voter in an ordinary family, why does he vote for the Communist Party ? He said, “There are no people here to carry your remains after death. The question is, who will perform the last rites ? At the time of someone’s death at his home, the funeral and material for last rites come from the local Communist Party office. Party workers carry the dead body themselves on their shoulders to the cemetery. Who else does that ? I had no answer to his question. I could learn from this interaction that Hindus in Kerala vote for the Communist Party to take themselves to the cemetery after their death.
