Alappuzha: CPM district secretary R Nisar has said that action in cases of insulting women and tobacco smuggling were taken unanimously. In a press release, the secretary stated that those who choose the wrong paths cannot survive in the communist party.

“Several people living in the society may adopt wrong path. However, comrades working in the communist party should not fall for it,” the press release stated.

The secretary said that action was taken against them after the party came to know about the wrongdoings of some activists. “All decisions taken were unanimous,” he said.

The CPM had expelled Alappuzha south area centre member AP Sona from the CPM for allegedly capturing obscene visuals of women on his mobile phone. The party had also removed Ijas, who was nabbed for smuggling illegal tobacco products.

He also stated that the reports in the media that there were differences inside the party were incorrect.

Nisar further said that there were some issues between some of the party activists in the Kuttanad area. These issues will be solved through discussions.

Meanwhile, police have deployed security in the area where AP Sona’s house is located. Officials were stationed in the area considering the possibility of a clash between two factions inside the CPM.

Controversy has also surfaced over the complaint against the CPM leader not being forwarded to the police. Organisations, including the Youth Congress, have come forward criticising the CPM. A section inside the CPM also demanded the party to forward the case to the police.
