Ruckus in Kerala Assembly over alleged fraud by top CPI-M leader's son

The Kerala Assembly on Thursday witnessed ruckus as the opposition Congress strongly took up the issue of alleged fraud committed by CPI-M state Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan's son in Dubai.

Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala, raising the issue on the floor of the House,
slammed the ruling Left party's "lavish style of living".

"It's very strange and surprising that while the CPI-M special plenum clearly pointed out that Communists should live very modestly, and we recently saw the party ousting an MP because he was using an expensive pen and an iPhone. But today we hear of this fraud done by the CPI-M state secretary's son, which has become a cause of shame for the Kerala diaspora. We demand a probe by the state government," said Chennithala.

The treasury benches stood up and tried to shout down Chennithala, but were strongly countered by the opposition bench legislators.

The chaos was over a media report alleging that Binoy Balakrishnan, the son of Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, had committed Rs 13 crore fraud with a Dubai-based company.

A three-page letter, dated January 5, from H.I.A.Al Marzooqi, sponsor of the Dubai company which was made available to the media states that he has started legal procedures against Binoy for the alleged fraud.

The issue has become the cause of a major headache for the CPI-M in Kerala.
However, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has shot down the demand for a probe stating that "these are only news reports".
"These are nothing but baseless allegations and no probe can be undertaken," said Vijayan.
