The Communist Party of India (Marxist) state secretariat recommended disciplinary action against party MLA K U Arunan for allegedly attending an event of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in Thrissur. According to the Indian Express, K U Arunan is the CPI(M) of the Irinjalakkuda constituency in the district of Thrissur. According to the said report, the communist party secretariat wants the district committee to take actions against Arunan. It must be noted that Arunan is now only a member of the party area committee and is likely to face some organisations actions due to his actions.
Arunan, on Monday, was reported to have been one of the attendees of a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh organised function in the Oorakam village. This is said to have embarrassed the left wing party that is busy and is leading a major campaign against the Sangh Parivar in Kerala. Arunan is reported to have been distributing books to children in the village, during his tenure at the programme to mark the commemoration of a local leader of the Sangh Parivar.
According to reports, the programme had also been attended by local leaders of the Congress leaders. Arunan spoke to the Indian Express after the media caught winds of the matter and it became a controversy and said that he believed the event to have been organised by a local temple and did not see any fault in distributing books to the children of the village. He added that the RSS banner at the venue could only have been noticed after reaching the spot.
