Jacob seeks judicial inquiry

There should be a judicial inquiry into the allotment of Plus Two courses in northern Kerala, Kerala Congress (Jacob) leader T.M. Jacob has said.

He was addressing a convention of the Kerala Congress (Jacob) here on Wednesday.

The pass per cent in SSLC examinations and student strength are the main norms for allotment of Plus Two courses. These had not been observed, he said.

The CPI(M)'s charge that some Churches were interfering in politics and indulging in anti-Communist campaigns was baseless. Such references made in the resolution passed at CPI(M)'s convention in Vijayawada were disrespectful, he said.

The CPI(M) had never aired such concerns while seeking the support of the church during elections, he said.

Community organisations like the church were part of society and they had the right to guide people on social issues including politics. The Church had the moral responsibility to guide the laity as politics affected the life of common people directly, he said.

The Left Democratic Front had been supporting illegal sand-minding and the land mafia. “There is nothing for the CPI(M) to be proud during its tenure,” he said.
