E Sreedharan, popularly known as the Metro Man of India, on Friday said that he opposes the concept of love jihad as he has seen Hindu, Muslim and Christian girls in Kerala being tricked into marriages.
Sreedharan said, “Love jihad, yes, I see what’s happened in Kerala. How Hindus are being tricked in a marriage and how they suffer.. not only Hindus, Muslims, the Christian girls are being tricked in a marriage. Now that sort of a thing I certainly will oppose,” Sreedharan was quoted as saying by NDTV.
He called Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan a “dictator” and said the government is immersed in corruption.
Sreedharan also said CM Pinarayi Vijayan rarely interacts with people and even the CPM has a bad image among the public.
On Friday, E Sreedharan told PTI that he would not oppose the chief minister’s candidature if he came to power and that he was entering politics with the intention of bringing the BJP to power in Kerala.
