CPM Idukki district secretary M.M. Mani has apologized for the controversial statement that there had been instances of the party eliminating its foes.
The controversial statement was made by CPI(M)’s Idukki district secretary M M Mani at a public meeting at Thodupuzha in Idukki district last night.
Mani’s speech came at a time when the party is on the defensive with the arrest of some of its activists in Kozhikode and Kannur districts in connection with the murder of Marxist rebel and RMP leader T P Chandrasekharan.
Ironically, Mani made the statement at a meeting called to explain to the public that CPI(M) had no role in the Chandrasekharan murder case.
In his sarcasm-laced speech, Mani reminded his audience of how some of the rivals of the party in Idukki district had been eliminated in the past.
