With skeletons of corruption tumbling out of the Kerala unit of CPI(M)’s cabinet, the “upright and vocal” picture of the ruling get together seems to have taken a beating. The man on the radar is none apart from Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan who’s passing by means of his worst ever occasions after allegations of corruption towards him and his household are flowing thick and quick.

Ever because the revenue tax division’s perusal of the papers of Kochi-based mining firm CMRL got here out within the open, his daughter Veena Vijayan has come beneath fireplace.

Investigations have revealed that her firm was paid Rs 1.72 crore for no providers rendered after which started a disagreement when first time Congress legislator Mathew Kuzhalnaden revealed far more and left the CPI(M) and its prime brass operating for canopy.

Despite ten days of the information, neither Vijayan, nor Veena or her husband- State Minister for Tourism P.A.Mohammed Riyas has spoken a phrase on it.

TV channels additionally confirmed the get together spokesperson Ok. Anilkumar strolling out of reports debates unable to both make clear or come out with convincing responses on questions on Veena’s IT agency.

And, if this wasn’t sufficient, got here the information the opposite day of a 22-hour-long raid by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) officers on the residence of senior CPI(M) legislator and former State Minister of Cooperation A.C.Moideen.

The raid revealed that many benami loans disbursed by the Karuvannur Service Cooperative Bank Ltd in Thrissur- the house district of Moideen was on his directions.

In an official launch, the probe company stated they “performed search operations beneath PMLA, 2002 on 22/08/2023 at 5 places throughout the state of Kerala as a part of investigation towards benamis and beneficiaries who siphoned off
financial institution funds of greater than Rs 150 crore from the Karuvannur Service Cooperative Bank’.

What has come as an enormous shocker to the get together is Moideen being requested to look on the Kochi workplace of ED on Thursday.

Meanwhile, on Friday, State Congress president Ok.Sudhakaran is showing earlier than an area courtroom to testify towards state CPI(M) secretary M.V.Govindan in a defamation case he has filed for his curt remarks linking Sudhakaran in a Pocso case.

A media critic, on situation of anonymity, stated by no means earlier than the Kerala unit of the CPI(M) has been caught in a number of points to this extent.

“The otherwise vocal national leadership of the CPI(M) known for coming out with statements if this happens in other parties, has nothing to say about what’s happening to their party in Kerala. The sight of general secretary Sitaram Yechuri ducking the media when asked about the turn of events in the Kerala unit reveals the state of affairs in the CPI(M), ” stated the critic.

Even Vijayan, who is understood for his very open assault on his detractors for the previous six months, has not opened his mouth and when many thought he clear the air on all of the allegations on the election rally at Puthuppally, his uncommon public look on Thursday night up to now six months, but it surely didn’t occur.

So, now one has to attend until September eleventh when the Assembly resumes its current session which was placed on maintain after the Puthupally by-election date was introduced.

Puthupally will go to polls on September 5 and votes counted on September 8.

All eyes are on September 11, when the brand new Puthupally legislator will get sworn in. Taking into consideration the present state of affairs, probabilities of a Left candidate successful the polls seems slim.

And if it occurs, then Vijayan will probably be respiratory simple, if not solely time will inform.
