(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Communist Party of India (Marxist) will be welcoming into its fold over half a dozen Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders and their 2000 supporters in Kannur, many of whom allegedly involved in killing several comrades, by rejecting the objections raised by party veteran V.S. Achuthanandan



Achuthanandan dubbed the rebels "Modi's men" and warned that any tie-up with them could backfire like an earlier alliance the party had forged with the People's Democratic Party, led by radical leader Abdul Nasser Madani



But the state committee rejected his warning saying that the BJP rebels had decided to embrace Communism as they were against the communalist agenda of the Sangh Parivar and censured Achuthanandan for speaking against the party line



The group, who turned rebels after the BJP refused to accept their demand for reviewing the appointment of a controversial leader as the district unit president, is expected to get a red carpet welcome with the central leadership of the CPM endorsing the decision of the state committee to admit them into the party



A meeting of CPM's available politburo at New Delhi on Monday also endorsed the warning issued by the state committee to Achuthanandan on the issue. The meeting noted that the entry of rebels into the CPM will weaken Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's bid to become prime minister



The BJP rebels led by O.K. Vasu and A. Ashokan had tried to drum up support for Modi after floating a forum called NaMO Vichar Manch (NVC). BJP leaders say they turned to the CPM after they failed to elicit support from the party cadres



The Congress, which heads the ruling United Democratic Front, has viewed the CPM decision to accommodate the BJP rebels, as a sign of a shift in their approach to the Sangh Parivar, whom the party treated as untouchables



Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President and Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala said it indicated that the distance between the CPM and the BJP was shrinking. He said he will not be surprised if the CPM forges an alliance with the Hindutva party in the coming Lok Sabha election



A sizeable section of the CPM workers themselves are unhappy over the decision. They fear the entry of the BJP rebels into the party would weaken its ideological fabric



Curiously, the CPM is welcoming the BJP rebels into the party fold on the day a court will be pronouncing the punishment to those who eliminated T.P. Chandrashekharan, who questioned the ideological deviations in the party



Those found guilty in murdering the Marxist rebel include three CPM leaders from Kannur and Calicut districts. A special court at Calicut had found them guilty of hatching a conspiracy to murder Chandrashekharan
