Baby–Issac:CPM controls by Christian lobbies

via HK Correspondent published on December 7, 2005

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The CPM has promised to make Kerala the most prosperous state in the world. The Kerala Study Congress to be held by the party from December 9 in the capital city has been described as a ‘prelude’ to the campaign for the Assembly election scheduled for May 2006.


 


The city of Thiruvananthapuram has been decorated with posters, festoons and posters eulogizing the CPM Study Congress. To send home the message that the party has undergone a major transformation under the Christian leadership of Thomas Issac and M A Baby, festoons and arches have been erected in front of the KJP House at Kawadiar, the residence of late K Janardhanan Pillai, the leading cashew exporter from Kerala who had to face a lot of hardship from the CPM leaders.


 


“What is good for the CPM is good for the people,” seems to be the basic principle of the party leadership. Hence, the CPM, which expects to win the 2006 elections, has already chalked out a development plan for the state with focus on private investment. The CPM itself is the most wealthy political entity in Kerala with assets running to the tunes of Rs 5,000 crore. Party leader M A Baby is known as “Baby Muthalali” among the cadres themselves.


 


Parvathy, a senior editor in Kairali channel, has gone on leave following harassment by the duo of Betty (the better half of M.A. Baby who calls the shots in Kairali TV Channel) and John Brittas, the Managing Director of the channel. It is said that Parvathi, daughter of CPM ideologue P Govinda Pillai, has become a thorn in the flesh of the Christian management of the channel.


 


The control of the party too has gone to the Christian lobby. Other than namesakes leaders like DYFI president and some innocuous state leaders, it is the Baby –Issac axis which call the shots in the party. VS group leaders describe this as the ‘axis of evil’.
