Kannur: Anthoor municipality chairperson P K Shyamala is set to resign from the post amid the controversy over the suicide of businessman
Sajan Parayil after the local body refused to grant licence for his project.
Shyamala, wife of CPM’s central committee member and former legislator M V Govindan, is learnt to have conveyed her decision to quit to the party district leadership.
The CPM on Saturday convened an emergency meeting of the party district secretariat.
Shyamala was summoned to the meet seeking an explanation from her.
It is learned that Shayamala is yet to hand over the resignation letter to the municipal secretary.
Sajan Parayil, 49, a Nigeria-returned businessman who had spent about Rs 16 crore for building an auditorium, hanged himself at his home on Tuesday.
Sajan’s wife Bindu had also demanded that Shyamala be slapped with charges of abetment to suicide.
