Kerala CPM to take decision on MM Mani today

Police had registered two cases against Mani on charges of murder, abetment and concealing information based on his speech at Thodupuzha.

New Delhi: The Kerala Police have summoned CPM's Idukki District Secretary MM Mani over the controversial statements that he made about CPM rivals being killed. The CPM is also likely to decide what action they might take on the issue in the second and final day of the state-level meet.

Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Tuesday rejected CPM's charge that case registered against Mani for his controversial speech stating that the Left party had eliminated at least three of its political foes years ago.

Reacting to CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan's statement in this regard, Chandy said here 'it is the CPM which is viewing the issue politically and in a wrong way.

"How can a government remain silent after revelation by a person of a matter of such magnitude," Chandy asked and said the government was committed to maintain law and order and was carrying out its responsibility.

Chandy also took exception to CPI-M's attitude towards the investigation into the murder case of Revolutionery Marxist Party leader T P Chandrasekheran and said government would not allow anybody to block the probe 'using force'.

CPI-M was actually challenging the rule of law by taking law in their hands, he said adding it was the Naxalites and Maoists who usually challenged the rule of the law.

Police had registered two cases against Mani on charges of murder, abetment and concealing information based on his speech at Thodupuzha.

Meanwhile, police filed FIR against Mani in the cases filed against him in a local court in Idukki.
