The Kerala government's recent decision to consider remission for three convicts in the high-profile T P Chandrasekharan murder case has ignited a fierce political storm. The Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have strongly criticized the ruling Left administration for this move.

K C Venugopal, AICC General Secretary and MP from Alappuzha, stated that not only the Congress but the entire state of Kerala would vehemently oppose this decision. Leader of Opposition in the Kerala Assembly, V D Satheesan, termed the government's action 'strange' and a clear violation of a High Court ruling that denied remission for the convicts.

Satheesan further alleged that the government had repeatedly granted parole to the convicts, provided them with luxurious facilities in prison, and allowed them to engage in dubious financial dealings. The opposition leader questioned the authority of the government and prison officials to grant remission when the High Court had explicitly prohibited it. UDF MLA K K Rema, who is also Chandrasekharan's widow, expressed shock and vowed to oppose the move both legally and politically.
