Kalpetta : Hearts are thumping for BJP leaders in the CK Janu bribery case after Crime Branch questioned the party District Secretary, Prashant Malavayal at thier office in Kalpetta The nervousness began after police found glaring discrepancies in Prashant’s statements, instilling fear among BJP leaders involved that the probe might stretch in other directions. The bribe investigation cracked wide open even as Yuva Morcha leaders submitted mass resignations criticizing and challenging the leadership openly. According to sources, police received incriminating details during their 7-hour interview of Prashanth.
The BJP district leadership is at loss to defend against the mass resignations, money embezzlement allegations and shaming on social media. While the challenge up to now was facing criticisms from other parties, the story has changed to BJP’s own leaders and workers bombarding accusations. Peppered with insults and allegations from party folks, the leadership is finding it extremely difficult to hold up.
On the social media front, criticisms and verbal abuses are flooding up Yuva Morcha and BJP affiliates' official pages, rendering the district leadership to be unable to come out in public without some sort of towel to cover the face. With bribery case becoming full blown immediately after elections, BJP has been unable to convene its district committee fearing volley of questions.
When the Organising Secretary M Ganesh arrived the other day, prsent at the meeting was just 3 or 4 persons from 3 Mandalam Committees and Core Committee. It was this meeting that decided on action against members including Deepu. The meeting dispersed on agreement to gather once again after 29th after coming to an abrupt halt when discussions began on the Funds Committee.
