Fiery CPM leader MM Mani has to mind his tongue  in future. The party on  Wednesday  suspended  him from the state committee for six months citing that his controversial speech on listed killings had  hurt the party.

The statement issued here after the  two- day state committee meeting  said  the former Idukki district secretary’s speech  had dented the credibility of the party’s campaign following the murder of T P Chandrasekharan.

Using Mani’s speech, the party’s enemies started attacking it, the statement said.

“In view of the fact that  comrade Mani’s speech had hurt the reputation of the party, the state committee has decided to suspend him from the  committee for six months,” the statement said.

The party was not following a policy of physically attacking or eliminating political opponents.

It is opposing them politically and ideologically. It has also made it clear that the party and comrade Mani had no role in the incidents mentioned in Mani’s controversial speech.

General secretary Prakash Karat reported the central committee resolution. The resolution called for the party to face the situation prevailing in the state unitedly.  State secretary Pinarayi Vijayan presented the report.

Politburo member M A Baby presided over the state committee meeting  which was attended by politburo members Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and S Ramachandran Pillai.
