Thiruvananthapuram: The CPM state secretariat has decided not to investigate or take action against Thiruvananthapuram Mayor Arya Rajendran over the controversial letter allegedly written by her. The party leaders have decided to wait until the completion of the police investigation into the matter. The party has taken a position that there is no need to hastily investigate the issue.
The secretariat also observed that the mayor has given a convincing explanation. It is learnt that the party will assure political protection to the mayor who is facing strong criticism for allegedly writing a letter to the CPM district secretary seeking a list of party members for appointments in the corporation.
When the controversial letter surfaced, CPM state secretary member and district secretary Anavoor Nagappan said that the party would investigate the matter. But the party had not appointed any leaders or formed an internal commission to investigate the letter.
Thiruvananthapuram mayor and CPM have landed in a controversy after the letter allegedly written by the mayor, addressed to Anavoor Nagappan came out through the media. The mayor dismissed the allegations against her and denied that she wrote, signed or sent any letter asking for the priority list of CPM cadres for temporary appointments in the corporation.
The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau director Manoj Abraham has ordered an investigation into the issue. They have received four complaints regarding the letter.
