Achuthanandan decries meddling of religious outfits in politics    

Kerala Chief Minister and CPI (M) veteran V S Achuthanandan on Monday criticised the tendency of religious establishments interfering in electoral politics,saying it was a 'dangerous trend.'

Interference of religious and community outfits in electoral politics was a dangerous trend and political parties should not give in to pressures from such quarters, he said.

He was apparently referring to reports of the Christian Churches and some Hindu community outfits exerting pressure in selection of candidates for certain Lok Sabha seats in the state.

After inuagurating the newly renovated building of the Kesari Memorial Journalists Trust under the Kerala Union of Working Journalists here, he said this trend that began in the days of the 'liberation struggle' against the first Communist ministry in Kerala was still continuing in some form or the other.

He said the media should also discourage this trend as it would amount to creating divisions in society.
