KOZHIKODE: In a controversial statement, noted historian M G S Narayanan has said that there are historical documents to prove that the Communist party had decided to eliminate leaders K Kelappan, Samuel Aron and Kozhippurath Madhava Menon. He was inaugurating a meeting to constitute organising committee to celebrate the 125th birth anniversary of Kelappan here on Wednesday.

“It was Communist party’s programme to liquidate those who dissent. The plan was to secretly commit the murder and put the blame on others. However, the party could not execute the plan,” he said.

MGS said the party plan failed as Madhava Menon became minister while the wealthy Aron had bodyguards. Though the responsibility to murder Kelappan was entrusted with many, everyone withdrew from the mission.

“Though a Gandhian, Kelappan was also a good fighter. Former Congress worker and party Kasargod secretary K Madhavan was one among those who were assigned for the mission,” MGS said.

Later, the party attempted to discard the contributions of Kelappan. “Kelappan was the leader of Guruvayur Satyagraha.

However, he was ignored while memorials were set up for leaders AKG and Krishna Pillai on the anniversary of Satyagraha,” he said.
