KOZHIKODE:Signaling deepening factionalism in the Congress in Malabar, KPCC general secretary T Siddique on Sunday resigned from the party post. His decision to quit has come following a domestic violence complaint filed against him by his ex-wife T Naseema.

In the letter sent to KPCC president V M Sureedharan, Siddique said that he was staying away until exonerated of all charges levelled against him.

Although he has not mentioned any name in his letter, Siddique alleged that attempts were being made from within the party and outside to destroy him politically and sideline him from public life.

“I am being targeted in an organised manner even with the accomplice of CPM. My family issues have been made a hot topic in TV discussions. They want to eliminate me from public life,” he said, adding that he was resigning as his position as party general secretary should not come in the way of the ongoing probe. Last week Naseema had registered a complaint that she and her two children were assaulted by Siddique and his gang.
