Thiruvananthpauram: November 11, 2013.

Welfare Party of India Kerala state general council meeting held at Santhigiri Ashram at Aluva near Kochi on 9th and 10th November elected Abdul Hameed Vaniyambalam as state chief for the period 2013-15. An Arabic teacher by profession, with vast experiences of student and youth activism and a well-known orator, he served as state vice-president under Kootil Mohammedali, the outgoing state president.

Members of the 128-strength state general council have been elected from all the 14 district bodies of the party. The district bodies have been formed after election of office bearers at local, panchayat and mandal levels.

Inaugurating the two-day conference of the state general council, Dr.S.Q.R.Ilyas, national general secretary said that the 2014 parliamentary election is crucial for the country from many angles and added that it will pave the way for new political alignment in the country. Dr. Ilyas elaborated that the people are frustrated with the mainstream political parties for genuine reasons and are in search for alternate options. He asked the party cadre to fulfill the aspirations of the people by their committed dedication to the core ideals of the party and sincere service of the people. Mr. P. Abdul Hakeem, state general secretary presented the political and organizational report while Prof. Ismail submitted the income expenditure statement. Mr. P.C. Hamza, national general secretary and Ms. Sheema Mohsin, national Women Wing Convenor also addressed the gathering. Discussion on the organizational report was very live, effective and highly useful. Later the state general council members were divided into 14 groups, with each group assigned of a particular topic and the group leader summarized the discussion and presented the viewpoints; this was a very interesting and informative session.

The state general council elected 25-member state working committee. With seven women members, the new working committee truly represented the Kerala multi-plural cross section with a number of persons having vast experience in political and social activities. 15 members were also elected to the Federal General Council.

In an emotionally charged atmosphere, Fr.Abraham Joseph, national vice president administered the oath of dedication and submission to newly elected Abdul Hameed Vaniyamabalam and Mr. Abdul Hameed administered the same oath to all the state working committee members. As a gesture of handing over the charge of affairs, the Party flag was handed over to the incoming president jointly by Fr. Abraham Joseph and outgoing president Dr. Kootil Mohammedali amidst thundering slogans of Inquilab Zindabad and Welfare Party Zindabad.

The state general council adopted a series of resolutions affecting the country as a whole and the people of Kerala in particular.

It asked for ensuring reservation for Dalit Christians and extended support of their agitation to get this demand approved.

The Gadgil Committee appointed by the central government has submitted its report for the preservation of the Western Ghats. The report suggests steps to be taken to protect and preserve the ecology. The Party finds it important to maintain the peculiarities of bio diversity of the state and its health and climatic conditions. The Party views it seriously the efforts by vested interested people to torpedo the report.  The Party demands to implement the report removing apprehensions and creating consensus.

 Price rise of all essential commodities have made the life miserable. The price rise takes place due to the wrong economic policy pursued by the government. Instead of making effective steps and intervention, the government follows the path of silent spectator and makes it easy for the giant corporate to amass huge profits. The Party asks the government to make effective measures and strong intervention to contain price rise.

In another resolution, the Party expressed its anxiety over large number of returnees from the gulf countries, especially from the Saudi Arabia due to the Nitaqat brought by the Saudi authorities. These NRIs have played a vital role in the progress made by the state in so many fields. The central and state governments as well the Indian missions abroad must take serious steps to minimise their hardships. The Party demands that the governments must initiate effective rehabilitation measures, allot sufficient funds in the budget for them and sanction pension for all the needy returnees.

At the cost of social justice, the public sector is shrinking day by day and the private-corporate field getting stronger. This drives away the dalits, adibasis and the backward commuities from the job sector. The corporates abundantly enjoy the fruits of the treasures entitled for whole citizens and hence the government should take legal and procedural steps to ensure reservation in private and corporate sector. It is need of social justice and inclusive democracy.

Another resolution alleged that many of the minority institutions possessed by the managements in the pretext of minority rights of the constitution are being run as mere commercial ventures. The Party asks for government monitoring to curtail such managements.
