Press Release

The purported letter by late Comrade E Balanandan, former member of the Polit Bureau, to the General Secretary of the CPI(M), which has been published in a section of the media, is a fabrication. No such letter, as cited in the media, was sent by Comrade E Balanandan.

This is a planned attempt to malign the CPI(M) by some elements who were expelled from the Party in Kerala some years back.

It is surprising that some sections of the media in Kerala and at the national level have published the contents of such a letter without verification.
