The central committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), CPM, has allegedly scuttled the chance of former Kerala health minister K K Shailaja winning the Ramon Magsaysay Award 2022. Reports said that the former CPM minister was recognised for her work during the Covid-19 pandemic and Nipah endemic in the state.

CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury today said that the Left Democratic Front (LDF), the public health infrastructure and the people of Kerala have set an example in tackling public health crises. They would consistently strive to do better. There were reasons why the Magsaysay award was not accepted.

He further said that this award was in the name of Ramon Magsaysay who has a history of brutal oppression of the communists in the Philippines. So for all these factors together, politely she has refused it.

K K Shailaja claimed that she had received a letter from the Magsaysay award committee and that the central committee of CPM had decided to forego the prize.

According to the reports, the party looked at different aspects of the award and decided that as health minister, Shailaja was merely doing her duty entrusted to her by the party.

The reports further said that the communist party decides that the Covid resistance was the result of the government’s collective effort. Shialaja should not receive the medal in her personal capacity because the state’s efforts to combat the Covid 19 pandemic and Nipah endemic were a part of a communal campaign.

Reports said that Shailaja informed the foundation expressing her inability to accept the award.

The Ramon Magsaysay Award was established in April 1957 by the trustees of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund based in New York in the name of former Philippine President Ramon Magsaysay. It is an annual award. The award is given to Asian individuals for achieving excellence in their respective fields.

Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi, who is set out on Bharat Jodo Yatra, will visit Mahakal in Ujjain today. And now politics has intensified on Rahul Gandhi’s visit of Mahakal and BJP has challenged the Congress MP to recite the Mahamrityunjaya mantra after calling him an electoral Hindu.

But seems like the Congress Party is in no mood to take on any non-sense from anyone as they were quick to respond and hit back on BJP by saying that BJP is seeing its defeat in 2024 and Rahul’s padyatra (Bharat Jodo Yatra) has shaken the BJP.

Calling Rahul Gandhi as an electoral Hindu, the Bhartiya Janata Party said that he has reached the door of Mahakal on an electoral philosophy. BJP spokesperson Rajpal Singh Sisodia while reciting the Mahamrityunjaya mantra of Mahakal on camera said that if Rahul Gandhi is a true Shiv devotee, then he should recite the Mahamrityunjaya mantra of Mahakal.

Furious with the objection of the BJP, the Congress said that like the BJP leaders, Rahul Gandhi is not going to conduct a photo session. He is a devotee of Mahakal and is going for darshan. They further said that BJP should not tell how Rahul Gandhi has to worship anyone. Congress spokesperson Mithun Ahirwar said that BJP is seeing its defeat in 2023, that is why Rahul Gandhi’s padyatra is making them agitated.

Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra entered Madhya Pradesh on 23 November after completing a journey of 2000 kilometers in South India. This yatra will now move through 14 assembly seats of 6 districts of Malwa Nimar via Burhanpur. There are 66 assembly seats in this entire region. In this, 22 seats are reserved for Scheduled Tribes and 9 seats for Scheduled Castes.

In Rahul Gandhi’s visit to MP, special attention has been given to the geographical conditions as well as the importance of Malwa-Nimar in the politics of the state. This area is also known as the nursery of the Sangh. Congress is trying to reach every section of the society in the state through this yatra.
