Luxury wedding: CPI to seek explanation from Geetha Gopi
Thrissur: The CPI will seek an explanation from party MLA Geetha Gopi representing Nattika constituency following the controversy over her daughter’s luxury wedding.
Stating that the conduct of marriage violates party policy in this regard, the state executive has directed the Thrissur district council to seek an explanation from the MLA.
It may be noted that a section of the party workers had lodged a complaint with the state leadership citing violation of party policies. Accordingly, a decision was taken to demand explanation from Geetha Gopi, who is also a member of the party district council.
The wedding had taken place recently at the Poothanam Auditorium in Guruvayour in Thrissur. Pictures of the wedding that went viral on social media showed the bride ‘decked’ in gold ornaments.
Geetha Gopi is a two-time CPI legislator from Nattika in Thrissur district.
The wedding comes closely after CPI MLA and former minister Mullakkara Ratnakaran raised the issue of extravagant marriages in the state and sought Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to curb ostentatious weddings.
