THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM state secretariat on Tuesday termed the Onchiyam comrades who had quit CPM in 2008 and formed the RMP, as pseudo-revolutionaries. In a release issued after the secretariat meeting here, party secretariat said T P Chandrasekharan and comrades had quit the party out of their greed for parliamentary positions.
The secretariat pointed out that it was during 2008 that Chandrasekharan, a member of the Onchiyam area committee, quit the party with a group of party workers over a dispute of swapping the presidentship of Eramala and Azhiyur panchayts with Janata Dal after the stipulated period of two-and a-half years under a mutual agreement.
Venu who later quit the party was the president of Eramala panchayat since 2005.
The secretariat said there was no Marxian or ideological issues involved in the quitting of the party workers like Chandrasekharan and Venu.
The secretariat said the RMP could influence the voters to the level of defeating the CPM candidate in conspiracy with UDF candidate Mullappally Ramachandran in 2009.
But they could not retain their influence in the Assembly election as the M P Veerendrakumar-led Socialist Janata Dal candidate was defeated by the LDF candidate.
The secretariat said the CPM did not want to kill Chandrasekharan as his party RMP had become a flattened balloon.
It alleged that the UDF, a section of the media and enemies of the party were engaged in a propaganda following the gruesome murder of Chandrasekharan.
It alleged that there was reason to suspect that even the murder was part of a larger conspiracy to malign the CPM.
The secretariat exhorted party workers and sympathisers to maintain vigil against the propaganda spread against the party.
