 'CM brought disgrace during Ockhi,' Pinarayi draws flak at CPM meet

Thiruvananthapuram: Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan came under severe fire at the Thiruvananthapuram district meeting of the CPM over his delay in visiting the Ockhi affected areas. The private secretary of cooperation and tourism minister Kadakampally Surendran, who raised the criticism, said that the chief minister should have acted with due concern while dealing with the tragedy.

Kallara Madhu, the private secretary, said that Kadakampally and fisheries minister J Mercykutty Amma had reached the disaster-affected area soon after the cyclone left its trail of destruction. However, the chief minister's delay in visiting the Ockhi-affected areas led to widespread resentment as well as disgrace, said Madhu.

Criticism was raised also against the police in the presence of the chief minister. Delegates did not refrain from attacking finance minister T M Thomas Isaac too, saying that he had misled the party over the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury was also not spared during the meet, a day after he confirmed that a complaint has been received against state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan's son for alleged fraud.

Many state leaders attacked Yechury in their speeches at the district conference with a few even accusing him of being disgruntled for not getting a Rajya Sabha renomination.
