Thiruvananthapuram: CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan has demanded action against RMP leader K K Rema, for calling LDF candidate in Vadakara - P Jayarajan, a murderer.
Kodiyeri said that Rema made the remarks to create misunderstanding among the voters and to defame the LDF candidate in public.
Kodiyeri added that he had submitted a complaint to the Central Election Commission and state election officer seeking action against Rema for violation of Model Code of Conduct (MCC). Kodiyeri took to Facebook in this regard.
Jayarajan was named a accused in two cases over allegations of conspiracy. He was not found guilty by the court in any case so far, Kodiyeri said.
In this situation, Rema’s statement on March 17 is misleading and defamatory. Action must be taken against her for violation of MCC. She must be refrained from making such statements in the future, Kodiyeri said in his petition to the election commission.
