Kannur: A family in the party village is facing some strict prohibitions from CPM. The party members, under the leadership of Panchayat member K R Janardanan threatened Pattuvath Edadan veetil Raghavan and his family.
Raghavan’s wife Meenakshy, who has been undergoing treatment, was threatened and told that she should stay at home itself chanting prayer and not to go for treatment anymore. The petition submitted against this threat was forcefully withdrawn by CPM. The family is also banned from lighting lamps in the evening before deities and also, from watching Janam TV.
CPM had conducted explanatory meetings in relation with the breach of rituals. These meetings did not receive any acceptance from the villagers.New threats and bans are in vengeance.
