Hycinth, a five-star hotel in Trivandrum, is all set to host the CPI(M) Central Committee that is scheduled to be held from January 6-January 8. This action has brought the ruling party of Kerala under the scanner as it is drastically contradictory to the abstinent attitude that the party has maintained throughout on lavish spending. The hotel is reportedly located at a distance of 3 km from AKG Centre, the party headquarters.
Such a step from a party which claims to be the common man’s party has raised many speculations among the public as well as the Opposition parties on the principles they follow.
Opposition Minister Ramesh Chennithala took to his official page on Facebook and posted a comment criticising the CPI-M’s decision to host the committee in a five-star hotel. In his comment, he has thrashed the party for deviating from its duties and for giving priority to the committee members’ comfort when it came to booking rooms for the meeting. He added that the party should not lose its standard at least on such petty matters and must remember the promises made to the common man.
