Contentious Award
Thiruvananthapuram: Whenever E.M.S. Namboodiripad's name is invoked in Kerala, it invariably leads to a controversy. That trend continues even after the Marxist patriarch's death. Last month, when the state's Mahatma Gandhi University decided to replace Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's biography with EMS' autobiography as a textbook for BA students, the opposition parties protested vehemently. The CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government resolved the issue by including both the books in the syllabus.
Last week, a fresh row cropped up in the state when the Bharat Sevak Samaj (BSS) instituted an award in EMS's name for those who had contributed significantly to the LDF Government's People's Planning Programme -- a decentralisation of the planning process of which EMS was the architect. But soon after Local Administration Minister Paloli Muhammed Kutty was selected the winner, EMS's son and CPI(M) State Committee member E.M. Sreedharan objected to it as the award was instituted without consulting EMS' family members or the Marxist party. "It is improper of the BSS, with which EMS had no association, to institute an award in his name," said Sreedharan. Suitably chastened, Kutty refused to accept the award, saying many others are worthy too. Matters only cooled when the BSS announced that it was bowing to Sreedharan's wishes and withdrawing the award.
