Thiruvananthapuram: CPM’s crucial state secretariat meeting will be held today. It is reported that the allegation of illegal acquisition of property against E P Jayarajan may be discussed in the meeting. There are indications that E P may be willing to step down as LDF convener.
Meanwhile, P Jayarajan has not filed a complaint yet. The ongoing Polit Bureau meeting in Delhi has given a suggestion to look into this matter in the state itself. The central leadership is of the opinion that it is enough to intervene only after examining the meeting of the state secretariat. PB also took the position that the state leadership should take the decision on investigating corruption allegations.
