A massive faceoff has erupted in Kerala after the Communist Party of India (Marxist) suggested withdrawing CBI’s general consent in the State. This suggestion was mulled in the recent CPIM meeting of State Secretariat.

The suggestion also comes to light amidst ongoing investigation in Kerala Gold Smuggling Case. State Law Minister, A K Balan has come out and that said the CPI (M) State Secretariat has discussed this matter and even Party Head Rahul Gandhi mulled similar decisions.

Earlier, the State of Maharashtra had taken similar decision. Along with Maharashtra, other non-BJP ruled states have also opted out CBI’s consent.
