The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Kerala has decided to take disciplinary action against its state secretary VV Rajesh for allegedly leaking an internal report related to the Medical College scam.

Party sources said Rajesh will be kept out of duties and organisational responsibilities.

The action was initiated following a directive from the Central leadership, the sources, who did not wish to be named, said.

The BJP state unit had come under a cloud recently after an internal party commission report surfaced in the media, which stated that a party functionary had allegedly received Rs 5.60 crore for getting Medical Council of India clearance to a private medical college at nearby Varkala.

The party had expelled RS Vinod, convener of the party co-operative cell, whose name was mentioned in the report.
