CPM orders inquiry against VK Madhu for non-cooperation in election campaign
Thiruvananthapuram: CPM has ordered an inquiry against Thiruvananthapuram district secretariat member VK Madhu over alleged non-cooperation in the assembly election campaign. As per the complaint, Madhu didn’t cooperate with the election campaign for G Stephen, party candidate in Aruvikkara constituency.
Earlier, CPM considered VK Madhu for Aruvikkara in the polls. But the state secretariat removed his name and proposed Stephen as the candidate. It is hinted that Madhu expressed strong protest over losing the candidature.
Vithura area secretary Shoukath Ali filed a complaint against Madhu for boycotting the election campaign.
The election report prepared by the district secretariat also carried remarks against Madhu. In this background, CPM decided to appoint a three-member inquiry commission to investigate the allegations against Madhu. C Jayan Babu, C Ajay Kumar and KC Vikraman are the members of the commission.
The inquiry commission will examine whether Madhu engaged in any misconduct during the election campaign. An explanation will be also sought in this regard.
