Around 300 CPM activists, including CPM Vellanad local committee secretary and Vellanad Service Cooperative Bank president S Krishnakumar and Vellanad panchayat former  president Girija Kumari will join the BJP.

Krishnakumar, who had a 35-years stint with the CPM, said that corruption and autocracy in the CPM leadership forced him to quit the party. Earlier, Krishnakumar had filed a complaint before the Vigilance which led to a raid on the Service Cooperative Bank.

Girija Kumari was the district committee member of the All-India Democratic Women’s Association, the women’s wing of the CPM and was the president of Vellanad panchayat from 2000 to 2010. She had received the President’s award for the best woman panchayat president.
