Is it a big crime if I, who have been in the midst of the general public for half a century, wish to become a people’s representative, at least once? The question is posed by Left co-traveller Cheriyan Philip on his Facebook page.
There were early reports that Cheriyan was being considered for the post of LDF’s Rajya Sabha candidate. But it was Elamaram Kareen who had ‘won the lot’. Now, it is so many days after this that he has spoken out his heart.
“In all parties, the main issue is power monopoly. Those who have got positions are again getting that. A same person holding the organizational post and parliamentary post is a bad practice and it is the ugly face of power monopoly,” he adds on his facebook page.
