The lewd remarks by Left front convener A Vijayaraghavan against Alathur’s UDF candidate Remya Haridas had kicked up a row.  The party state secretariat which met here is of the view the LDF convener’s remarks were unnecessary at the time of elections. It’s like arming the opponents at the time of elections. The CPM leadership feels such unnecessary remarks should have been avoided.


Meanwhile, the CPM central committee member MC Josephine was highly critical of her response to Vijayaraghavan’s remark.

The Commission has also sought a report from its law officer on the development. CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury also rejected the controversial remark and said that the state leadership will look into the same.
