Thiruvananthapuram, April 3 (BPNS)

The ruling CPM is to take disciplinary action against its second term MLA from Kayamkulam assembly constituency, U. Prathiba over her controversial remarks against the party leadership. A senior leader of the CPM while speaking to IANS said that the MLA has gone beyond the party discipline and will have to face action. Sources said that she is likely to be demoted in the party hierarchy but only after the party Congress to be held from April 6th to 10th.

Prathiba while speaking in a cultural programme a couple of days before at the state capital has said that she was backstabbed by the local CPM leaders at Kayamkulam and that she prefers an open fight rather than backstabbing.

The woman MLA had earlier also courted controversy over her social media posts against the local party leadership after she was denied the prestigious party Alappuzha district committee membership.

After her social media post turned controversial, the MLA said that she was quitting social media and that she was not for any controversial statements.

With the CPM party, Congress, or national conference to be held at the party red fort Kannur from 6th to 10th April, the party leadership in Alappuzha district is embarrassed over the party MLA coming out against the local leadership.

The CPM in Alappuzha district, the home district of veteran communist leader and former Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan, has always been mired in group wars and controversies and the open statement of U. Prathiba is seen in this context.
