Several members of the CPI State council have raised doubts about the nature of the Opposition stir targeting Chief Minister Oommen Chandy over the ‘solar scam’.

The CPI council members were of the view that the continued blockade of the Chief Minister was undemocratic as he was an elected leader of the people. This, they pointed out, may well result in people’s wrath against the Opposition Left Democratic Front (LDF).

Some of them termed the agitation ‘sectarian’ in nature and accused the State party leadership of having followed the CPI(M) blindly. The party should immediately do a rethink on the nature of the agitation, they said.
