Dr. Kunj Abdullah on BJP list
By Arif Zain, Malappuram

Renowned Malayalam novelist and short story writer Dr. Punathil Kunj Abdullah has figured in BJP's list of candidates for the forthcoming Assembly elections in Kerala. With this, BJP's bid to get a Muslim as its candidate in the election bore fruit. Though the party has a considerable number of Christians in its fold, Muslims were beyond its reach.Despite its prolonged attempt to attract Muslims by imposing a more liberal face as its state unit president, the community kept itself aloof from the party. Yet no other Muslim candidate is included in the first list released in New Delhi on 10th April. Dr. Kunj Abdullah, who did his MBBS from Aligarh, is a tall figure in Malayalam literature and considered to be a pro-leftist writer hitherto. His candidature was anticipated by political observers as his name was heard in the news from quite some time.
‘I do not agree with BJP in its every activity, demolition of Babri Masjid was the biggest mistake they committed ever’ he said.

BJP's hope to open an account in Kerala Assembly was brightened with the widening divide between the Congress factions in the state following impasse over distribution of party tickets. BJP circles in the state believe that the infighting in the congress and the anti-incumbency factor would help the party in bagging a seat or two, keeping an eye on this Mr. O Raja Gopal, party veteran and union minister and Mr. C.K.Padmanabhan, president, state unit of the party began to go to press with statements praising senior Congress leader Mr Karunakran

It is apparent that the rank and file and workers of UDF have worn a frustrated look over the heated exchanges made by the Congress leaders in public, still they are hopeful that the problems will be settled down in a week or two.
