CPI(M) warns against bid to malign LIFE Mission

Communist Party of India (Marxist) State secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan has cautioned against attempts to smear the LIFE Mission housing project by dragging it into controversies.

Briefing reporters about the decisions of the party secretariat here on Friday, Mr. Balakrishnan said a statement purpotedly made by Swapna Suresh before the National Investigation Agency (NIA) should not be used to malign a project that constructed 2.25 lakh houses for the poor. She had reportedly told the NIA that she had received Rs. 1 crore as commission from the Red Crescent that is implementing the housing project at Wadakkancherry in Thrissur. Mr. Balakrishnan clarified that the government would take action on the statement upon getting an official communication from the NIA.

The party was opposed to cyberbullying of any sort.

The party would organise an agitation on August 23 in compliance with the COVID-19 protocol against the anti-people policies of the Union government.
