BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan has written an open letter to party workers, after medical college bribery scandal tainted its anti-corruption image, saying that he has uprooted all the weeds from the party. The letter comes at a time when the national leadership has formed a special committee to investigate the allegations. 

Party national president Amit Shah is planning to visit the state in October in an effort to clear the image of the party. The special panel was formed to conduct a probe against advisors of Kummanam in the backdrop of complaints that he is functioning without communicating his activities to general secretaries. It is also alleged that he is taking decisions unanimously.

Kummanam wrote the explanation letter from the hospital bed and said that some 'weeds' tried to grow under party's shade, but they have been uprooted. He also said that if any parasites are remaining, they too will be uprooted. 

The leader said that media reports aim to tarnish party image in public and alleged that the controversies are results of conspiracy. 

Kummanam clarified that medical college bribery scandal is not a case of corruption but an instance of financial fraud by an individual. It is already proved that those linked with the case had no connection with the party.
