Kodiyeri Balakrishnan steps down as CPI(M) Kerala state secretary

They say enemies of your previous life take birth as your kids in this life. If one has any doubt, one just needs to look at the political life of Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, who stepped down from the powerful post of CPI(M) Kerala State Secretary on Friday, thanks to the wayward life of his sons.

Kodiyeri Balakrishnan was granted leave by the party secretariat a day after his youngest son Bineesh Kodiyeri was sent to Central Prison, Bengaluru after a special court remanded him in judicial custody till November 25. Bineesh has been in the custody of ED in connection with a money laundering case linked to a drug seizure in Karnataka―a probe that stems from a Narcotics Control Bureau investigation that claimed to have busted an ecstasy pills drug trafficking racket in the film industries across the country.
