Palakkad: CPI-M central committee member and senior party legislator E.P. Jayarajan reacted with anger to the flurry of questions on the propriety of the advertisement.
"What do you know of the plenum? There is really nothing wrong with the advertisement. You (the media) can conclude what you please, as is your wont," Jayarajan told reporters.
The advertisement, featured Friday on the front page of Deshabhimani, the party organ, is a greeting from the Surya Group of Companies and carries a picture of V.M. Radhakrishnan who heads the company. The Surya Group wished the party all success at the three-day plenum.
