Through his openness to learn and humility to accept ideas, he helped the ancient medical system reinvent itself in accordance with the changing times.

The sons of Pakistan-based Salahudin—Syed Shakeel and Shahid Yousuf—were sacked over their alleged involvement in terror funding, which is being probed by the NIA. Shakeel was working as a medical assistant in Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences while Shahid was at the Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Science and Technology . Former R&AW chief A S Dulat had once famously described how he had facilitated the admission of Salahuddin’s son in a medical college in Srinagar. All of the others were also found to have links with terror groups. CPM probe against strongman Sudhakaran E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @ T’Puram Acting swift on the complaints against senior leader G Sudhakaran, the CPM has set up a party commission to probe into the lapses on the part of the and former minister during the campaigning in Ambalappuzha constituency in the recent assembly elections. The party assigned a twomember panel comprising central committee member Elamaram Kareem and state secretariat member K J Thomas to probe the matter, after it found the allegations seri- ous in nature. Noticeably, Sudhakaran kept away from the state committee meet which decided to initiate probe against him. It’s after a long time that the CPM is initiating a probe against a state committee member. With this, the party is sending out a message loud and clear to all cadre to fall in line and that violation of party discipline won’t be tolerated, irrespective of seniority. The state committee meet witnessed severe criticism being directed against Sudhakaran.

He said such allegations should be seen as a concerted effort to insult the state. “It is not right to point out isolated incidents and create roadblocks in the state’s industrial progress. These attempts will be viewed only as a move to wreck the state’s march forward,” Pinarayi said. On Kitex Group’s investment in Telangana, Pinarayi indicated a waitand-watch approach and declined further comment. “Everyone is bound to obey the law. Complaints, if any, would be examined and such inspections are only natural. These should not be seen as witch-hunt and the government has no intention of doing so,” he said, in what is seen as a response to Kitex Group’s charge of being hounded by authorities. The chief minister said Kerala has the best investor-friendly climate at the national level. “In the It is not right to point out isolated incidents and create roadblocks in the state’s industrial progress.

He welcomed blending of treatment methods from different streams to deal with critical cases.

But with Left regaining power, it didn’t happen this time.

A state committee member and one of the senior-most leaders in CPM, Sudhakaran has been the face of the party in Alappuzha district. The former MLA from Ambalappuzha was controversially denied ticket to contest the assembly polls. ● More on P5
