KANNUR: M V Jayarajan said the policy adopted by the party in forming the government was the communist principle that an individual should surrender to the party. It was due to this policy K K Shailaja was not made a minister. Jayarajan clarified the party's policy to a private channel ahead of the start of the CPM's first district convention in Kannur district today. He said he was not afraid of the criticisms rising from the lower levels in the party. Jayarajan also rejected criticism that P Jayarajan, another senior leader of the party, is being shunned. All these allegations are baseless and there is nothing wrong in not fielding P Jayarajan this time. He also said the CPM could not make a person an MLA till he dies.

The CPM Kannur district meet will be held at Eripuram from today till December 12. The delegate meeting will be inaugurated by politburo member and Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan at 10 am.
