KOCHI: The CPM State leadership will look into the controversial remarks made by LDF Convenor A Vijayaraghavan against UDF's Alathur candidate Remya Haridas, CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury said here on Wednesday. In an interaction with media persons at Ernakulam Press Club, the CPM leader said he did not know the details about the remarks.

"However, the policy of CPM is that it will not do any compromise on women-centric issues. The Party will look into the issue to assess whether there are any flaws from Vijayaraghavan's side in this matter," Yechury added.
