THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Making matters worse for the state unit of the CPI, C Divakaran MLA, one ofthe four national executive members from Kerala, will be removed from the national executive.

Divakaran, who had faced disciplinary action over the ‘cash-for-seat’ controversy in connection with the selection of candidate for the Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituency, had already been removed from the state executive of the party.

Divakaran, who is also the Legislature Party leader of the CPI, has been keeping away from the national executive meeting which was in session from Tuesday. Divakaran’s issue was discussed on Friday, which ended in his exit.

However, the decision has to be ratified by the national council. The removal of Divakaran from the national executive is likely to  further vitiate the factional feud in the state party, which is facing a tough time over other issues as well, ahead of the party conferences.

Speaking to Express, Divakaran said that he had already submitted his resignation from the national executive of the party.

“I have already handed over the resignation letter to party general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy. Now, the national executive and national council will take a decision on it,” he said.

“I have pointed out that as the state council of the party had demoted me from the state executive it would not be a good precedent to continue in the national executive of the party. Especially, as the state party is not willing to retain me in the state executive,” he said.

Asked whether he would insist on his resignation, Divakaran said that he would have to abide by the decision of the national executive. He also clarified that he would continue in the party national council.

Divakaran said whatever be the decision of the party central leadership, he wanted to view the decision of the state council seriously.
