Teach MM Mani Marxism, Binoy Viswam tells CPM CPI leader Binoy Viswam

Thiruvananthapuram: Power minister M M Mani has come in for severe criticism from former forest minister and CPI leader Binoy Viswam over the proposed neelakurinji reserve issue.

The CPM leadership should teach M M Mani the Marxist stand on environment, Binoy Viswam said. People who block their ears when they hear the word environment and mouth expletives are the real encroachers.

Mani is speaking the language of big businessmen who see land only as a means to make big money, Binoy Viswam told Manorama in Delhi.

The former minister also indirectly targeted Devikulam MLA S Rajendran. The people who issued threats if a hearing is held to find out genuine pattayam (title deed) holders when he was the forest minister are the same who are making noise now, he said.

Encroachers won't be allowed to loot the western ghats in the name of tribals. The tribals and other poor people who live together in one place and cultivate crops at a different place should be protected.

It was current chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan who then wrote a letter to protect those living in Kottakamboor and Vattavada villages, said Binoy Viswam. The land held by these people won't be more than 500 acres, he added.

The V S government declared the neelakurinji area a wildlife sanctuary to save the Kottakamboor and Vattavada areas from the encroachers’ lobby. It was not aimed at displacing anybody. Those have legal title deeds need not worry. But encroachers should be removed without any political bias, he said.
