THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and the CPM have succumbed to the pressure tactics of Thomas Chandy, said former KPCC president V M Sudheeran. “The CPM has lost its moral and political rights to ask Thomas Chandy to put in his papers,” he said.

“It has to be believed Thomas Chandy, in effect, has blackmailed the CPM leadership and left them in a state of inertia. The arrogant stand of Chandy that no one could force a resignation out of him is a result of financial dealings between many in the CPM and him.” He said the undue support given to Chandy by the CPM reflects the party’s sacrifice of Communist values.

“The same was evident when the Left Government handed over the Kovalam Halcyon Castle to a private group, its lenient approach towards Harrisons-Tata, transfer of  young IAS officers who spearheaded eviction of encroachments, safeguarding violation of revenue rules by Joice George MP and P V Anwar MLA and also protecting the interests of liquor barons and self-financing medical college managements,” he said in a release.
