Thiruvananthapuram: JSS leader K.R. Gowri is welcome to come and join the CPI, state secretary of the party Veliyam Bhargavan said here Sunday. CPI was ready to recieve Gowri even when she left the CPM, he said. Veliyam said that he doesn’t think that Gowri’s joining the CPI now will create any issues in the LDF.
But it is up to Gowri to decide whether she wishes to join the CPI, he said. But if she says that she is interested in joining the party, then the CPI will discuss the issue, he said. Veliyam said that the CPI is the ’family’ of Gowri.
Earlier in the week Gowri had protested against the stand of the Congress leadership against her party. Meanwhile, JSS state president A.N. Rajan Babu said that nobody from the party has decided to join the CPI.
