Kozhikode: There are rumours doing the rounds that former MSF national vice president Fathima Thahiliya is likely to be CPM candidate in the upcoming local body bypoll and the Muslim League took action against her in view of this move.

Earlier, Fathima Thahiliya had strongly protested against the party leadership for hearing the version of Haritha leaders in connection with the sexual harassment allegation. However, the party found this as indiscipline and removed her from the post of MSF national vice president. Fathima Thahiliya was also the first state general secretary of Haritha.

Though Fathima did not expect a disciplinary action against her soon after the state committee of Haritha was dissolved, it is learnt that the rumours on her joining hands with the CPM resulted in the quick action.

Earlier, there were reports that CPM had approached her offering candidature in local body polls. Fathima had denied this but she expected that League would make her candidate in the assembly election. But they considered Noorbina Rasheed instead of her.

Muslim League has taken the public remark of Fathima Thahiliya as a serious matter. There are rumours that Fathima may contest the bypolls to Nanmanda division of Kozhikode district panchayat. The seat fell vacant after Kanathil Jameela was elected to the assembly.
