Mathrubhumi to dump editor Gopalakrishnan

By John Cheeran
The news is that Mathrubhumi newspaper's management is dumping Gopalakrishnan, its editor for more than nine years. The move is said to be as a result of the pressure exerted by the CPI (M) and its state unit secretary Pinarayi Vijayan on the newspaper management.
The buzz is that N Madhavankutty, former Resident Editor of the New Indian Express in Kerala, may get the Mathrubhumi job, though Kutty has been positioning himself as the guardian angel of the official faction of the CPI (M) in Kerala.
In that case, Faris Abu Backer-Ranji Paniker team will have to look for another editor to launch its newspaper Vartha.
