THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: DGP Jacob Thomas need not step down from the post of vigilance director, decides the CPM. This decision was taken at the available secretariat attended by party general secretary Sitaram Yechury at the AKG Centre Wednesday morning. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan attended the secretariat.
If he is permitted to step down, it would be a negative impact for the government. Removing Thomas, who has not done anything wrong, will not give a good message, pointed Kodiyeri. The chief minister too was of the same opinion.
