V S Achuthanandan says the CPI(M) will act against MLA accused of sexual harassment

V S Achuthanandan, the former Chief Minister of Kerala, who heads the Kerala Administrative Reforms Commission has said that strict action would be taken against CPI(M) MLA from Shornur MLA P K Sasi, who is alleged to have sexually harassed a DYFI leader.

As per reports, a woman member of the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI)  has accused CPI(M) MLA P K Sasi of sexual harassment, after which the CPI(M) had initiated an inquiry.

Reportedly, V S Achuthanandan has said that appropriate measures will be taken against the MLA after looking into the situation. He also added that since it is an issue concerning a woman, strict action can be expected against the MLA.

MC Josephine, the chairperson of the Kerala Women’s Commission, had earlier said that without receiving any complaint, they cannot file a case against the MLA.

The Party (CPI[M]) and the Women’s Commission are two different entities. If CPI(M) has received a complaint, they have their own ways of handling the matter,” said Josephine.

It is reported that the DYFI member had earlier written to the CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan. The state unit had said it will probe the charges of sexual harassment levelled against Shoranur MLA P K Sasi. However, there was no action taken against the MLA, which prompted her to write another complaint to Brinda Karat.

Brinda Karat had forwarded the complaint to the central leadership. Sitaram Yechury, the party chief has now ordered the state unit to probe the incident.

In her complaint, she has accused P K Sasi of sexually harassing her in the Mannarcud party office. She has also added that the MLA used to call her up often and speak to her in obscene language.

However, Shornur MLA has rejected all the charges against him and called it a conspiracy to defame him.
