Even as the CPI leader Benoy Viswam has said that the Congress is indispensable for Indian democracy, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said that Congress is turning into a political party that supplies leaders to the BJP.

Chief Minister while addressing the CPM, Palakkad district conference said that several senior leaders of the Congress have found a new address in BJP and have joined BJP without any shame. He also lashed out against the statement of the Congress leader and former AICC president, Rahul Gandhi’s statement on a Hindu leader becoming Prime minister of India.

Pinarayi Vijayan meanwhile took stringent action against the dissidence activities in the CPM at the Palakkad district conference by stating that dissidence and group activities will not be tolerated in the party.

The Chief Minister did not allow an election for the post of district secretary of the Palakkad district committee of CPM and wanted the party delegates to unanimously select a district secretary.

Senior CPM leader from Chittoor in Palakkad district, E.N. Suresh Babu was declared as the Palakkad district secretary of the CPM. Chief Minister in his speech said that certain leaders were trying to create an island of themselves and added that such leaders will not have a place in the party.

It may be noted that the CPM Party Congress or the national conference is scheduled to take place in April at the party red fort of Kannur which is the home district of the Chief Minister and CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan.

It may be noted that the CPM district conferences are taking place and the party-state conference will take place in February 2022. With the CPM being in power only in Kerala, the party Congress or national congress will be a major show of strength for the Kerala CPM.
