The book Onchiyam Oru Marana Warrant, relating to the murder of rebel Marxist leader and RMP founder TP Chandrasekheran, was released by noted writer Perumbadavam Sreedharan in the presence of KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala at a function in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday.

Muraleedharan pointed out that Sreedharan has his own publishing unit Pranavam and an RSS run printing house Kurushekhtra and so bringing out a book through KPPC's unit by passing these publications was with an eye on business.

Chennithala had said the organisation did not hold sectarian political views when it came to promoting writers belonging to other political parties.
