Murders, sex scandals, civil war rocking CPM
Thanks to CPM, Pranab Dada, is dreaming of Presidentship and thanks to Pranab Dada, the CPM ruled in West Bengal happily for 34 years. It needed a fighter in Mamata to dislodge the CPM fort. But in Kerala, a single murder, that of rebel CPM leader, TP Chandrasekharan (TPC) has turned into a nightmare for the party. Coupled with Fazal and Shukoor murders and sex scandals of its Kochi strongman Gopi Katamurickal the CPM is on the run and desperate. Skeletons have started tumbling out of its Kannur cupboard, with re-probe on, into the murder of BJYM brave heart KT Jayakrishnan and Chief Minister Oommen Chandy assuring Jayakrishnan’s mother Kausala that CBI probe will be requested by Kerala.
Thanks to the determination of Kerala Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, who is hell-bent on baring CPM’s murder politics, 55 leaders, cadres and hit-men of the party are in custody, for the brutal murder of TPC on May 4th.
Kodi Suni, Kirmani Manoj and Mohammed Shaji, three of the seven hit-men who butchered TPC were arrested from a dense forest behind a CPM controlled village. Together with Rajeesh, Shijith and Anoop who were arrested earlier, six of the seven are in custody. Relentless search is going on for the last Shinoj. Although CPM Kannur leader PK Kunjananthan went into hiding for almost 50 days, the SIT forced his surrender in the Badagara court. Media reports say that police have come to the conclusion that Kunjanathan acted as the link between killer gang and CPM leadership. The conspiracy to kill TPC was hatched at Kunjananthan’s house and the killer gang was present there. Based on Kunjananthan’s confessions, CPM Kozhikode leader P Mohanan has also been arrested. The CPM attacked the badagara court and organised a bandh against Mohanan’s arrest. Reports say that Mohanan had frequently interacted with Kunjananthan. He had given the final elimination order from CPM leadership to Kunjananthan INI TPC VENDA (TPC need not live hereafter).
The SIT has also arrested Kannur CPM Secretary P Jayarajan’s close relative EM Shaji in this case. Media reports say that SIT has its eyes plucked on P Jayarajan and it may move up, even to the top leadership of CPM in Kerala. P Jayarajan’s son was injured while making bombs and there are reports that he is on treatment, outside Kerala. KK Ragesh, former SFI National President has been summoned by SIT, for role in TPC’s murder.
Based on Home Minister’s instructions, photos of CPM leaders kept in jails of Kerala have been removed and CPM prisoners of Block 8 in Kannur Jail (a CPM Village) have been sent to other jails of Kerala.
Let us hope murder politics comes to an end in Kerala.
