Thiruvananthapuram: CPM district secretary Anavoor Nagappan has been entangled in a fresh controversy when the telephone conversation of former SFI district secretary JJ Abhijith was leaked. In the purported audio clip, Abhijit revealed that Anavoor Nagappan had advised him to hide his real age to continue in SFI.
“Anavoor suggested telling my age as 26, if anyone asked”, Abhijith said in the audio. He also said that his real age is 30. However, he has fake certificates that mark different ages for various purposes in the party, he claimed.
“Though I was born in 1992, I have many fake certificates with my year of birth recorded as 1994, and 1995”, Abhijith said.
He also said that there is no one in the party to challenge him now. Someone has to be here to compete with, he said.
The party had taken action against Abhijith for consuming liquor from a bar after participating in an anti-drug campaign. However, it has been learnt that disciplinary action followed when he misbehaved with a woman activist in the party.
