MV Govindan, who was chosen to serve as the state secretary, is generally agreed upon in the CPIM to continue serving in the legislature for the time being. The state secretariat will decide when the minister should resign at its meeting on Friday. MV Govindan will continue in his role as MLA, carrying on the traditions of his predecessors Pinarayi and Kodiyeri. He will probably be invited to the Politburo at the following Central Committee meeting.
Pinarayi Vijayan continued to serve as an MLA after leaving his job as the Power Minister in October 1998 to take on the role of party secretary. His term as an MLA ended in 2001. In February 2015, Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, a lawmaker from Thalassery, was appointed state secretary. He kept going till his tenure was over. At the leadership level, it is understood that MV Govindan should not quit in this case, notwithstanding what he said during the press conference, which goes against the consensus.
This topic will be covered in the state secretariat meeting on Friday. The probability exists that the minister will leave his position prior to Onam. If so, there won’t be a delay in the cabinet’s organisation. He will unavoidably be a member of the Politburo since he is the secretary of the country’s largest party. He may be invited to join the PB by the upcoming central committee.
