Archbishop in Kerala Joseph Pamplany Has completely rejected the statement of K.K., in which it was said that if the central government increases the price of rubber in the state to Rs.300 per kg, then the farmers here will vote in favor of the BJP. Politics has now intensified on this statement of Joseph Pamplani. The Christian community has also protested.
Although it is true that some Christian leaders in the state have tried to forge an alliance with the BJP. This is the reason why BJP has also supported this statement of Arch Bishop. And said that the condition of the farmers in the state is bad. The present government of the state is not taking care of the rubber farmers.
Intellectuals expressed displeasure
Joseph Pamplani is the archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church in Thalassery, northern Kerala. Regarding his statement, most of the Christian community in Kerala says that his opinion does not represent the opinion of our community. His demand cannot be accepted.
The intellectuals of Kerala have also strongly objected to his statement. Most of the people say that religious leaders should not get involved in such matters. They should understand that it is never the system of any official church to tie up with any political party. Christians believe in fighting for the rights of the individual.
Editor of Indian Currents weekly Dr. Suresh Mathew says that “The archbishop is being instigated to try to exchange votes for 300 rupees. This will worsen the political situation. He further bluntly says, “Today such religious decrees will not be followed in Kerala.”
Arch bishop is being criticized everywhere
A section of common people is also criticizing the archbishop for compromising on individual rights. People say that every farmer has the right to vote for any political party as per his choice. But no religious leader has the right to influence the choice of a common man or farmer.
leave the right of the farmers to them
People say Christian leaders should fight for individual rights. Fair price is the right of every farmer of the country. Apparently, the archbishop is being openly criticized here for only raising the issue of rubber farmers and neglecting all other farmers.
The intellectuals of Kerala are advising the archbishop to learn from the protest of the farmers in Delhi. The Archbishop has been told that he should take inspiration from the struggle of these farmers, mainly from North India, who have been on the streets for a long time raising their voice for their demands.
They should also raise the issue of all farmers instead of production and sale of any particular crop.
