Meanwhile, the BJP core committee has decided not to appear for questioning in the Kodakara money laundering case. The BJP had alleged that the government and the police were hunting down the party in the money laundering case.

The main allegation is that the state government and the CPM are conspiring to attack BJP leaders through the investigation of the case.

At the beginning of the Kodakara case, however, it was news that none of the BJP leaders were ready to support K Surendran. Only senior leader Kummanam Rajasekharan supported Surendran in the press release. But after the core committee meeting that followed, leaders including PK Krishnadas, AN Radhakrishnan and MT Ramesh came out in support of Surendran. The party then went on a direct strike.
