THRISSUR: CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan went critical on the decision of AMMA, the Malayalam actor's organization, to reinduct Dileep in the organization. Speaking to the media here on Saturday, Kodiyeri made it clear that those who took a stand favouring AMMA in the organization, were not party members and no action could be taken against them. "The AMMA organization has taken a wrong stand and the party has given a similar view on all those who support the organization," said Balakrishnan. He also condemned the wide criticism against Mohanlal, in the name of the issue.
Actor Dileep is an accused in the February 2017 actress kidnapping case which took place in Kochi, that landed him in a Kerala jail for 85 days. AMMA is under fire under fire from several quarters over their decision to reinstate into the artistes' body.
Amidst the misogyny row and complaints on "male dominance" in the industry, Malayalam actresses Rima Kallingal, Remya Nambeesan and actor-director Geethu Mohandas, who are the popular faces of Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) resigned from AMMA. The first to resign from the Association was the actress-survivor.
