Kochi: The Left is trying to destroy India's history, cultural heritage and individual relationships by espousing a flawed economic paradigm, said S Gurumurthy, co-convenor of Swadeshi Jagaran Manch, economic wing of Sangh Parivar, on Monday.

Delivering the keynote address at the inaugural function of P Parameswaran Navati Celebrations, Gurumurthy, a noted columnist, said that development in the West was based on the destruction of its history, culture and individual and societal relationships.

"They (left) were able to achieve the goal in Europe and Latin America," he said.

Gurumurthy said even Karl Marx had thought that India could move towards a revolution by destroying its culture.

However, such a policy could not be implemented in India as it had strong cultural relationships, he said at the function, organised by Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram (BVK).

Gurumurthy said the agenda of economic development as pursued by the western countries was a total fiasco.

"During the G-20 Summit (at Hangzhou, China in 2016), the U.S. was isolated by other countries due to such a policy," Gurumurthy was quoted as saying a release.

Hailing the success of demonetisation that expelled high denomination notes from circulation, he said the success of the measure was also due to the fact that people helped each other without monetary transactions.

"This has proved that individual relationship and cultural heritage can also be a tool for the countrys economic development," he said.

Further, the policy document of Niti Aayog, approved by the Union Cabinet, has a major role to play for the economic prosperity of the country, Gurumurthy said.

Gurumurthy said India is marching ahead by treading on the path shown by Hindutva renaissance ideologues likeParameswar.

"The service of Parameswarji to the society cannot be ignored by anyone in the country," he added.

Inaugurating the function, Dr Vijay Bhatkar, Chancellor, Nalanda University, said India would become a developed nation when knowledge seekers from all parts of the world flock to its universities.

"The higher education sector in our country should be equipped to make India a knowledge base," he added. Bhatkar said India is the only country which has maintained a strong cultural identity from the historical period.

"America established its supremacy during the 20th century through its army strength. Now the 21st century is the time for India," he added.

The function, attended by Parameswaran, was presided over by BVK General Secretary M Mohandas.

BVK Jt Secretary R Sanjayan, General Secretary K C Sudhir Babu and Programme Committee co-Convenor A R S Menon also participated.
