Dismissal Of The First Communist Ministry In Kerala And Extraneous Agencies
It was during the period of cold war between the United States of America and Soviet Russia the Communists came into power in Kerala in 1957. It made India one of the theatres of cold war. The Communist ministry brought many land marking legislations on land, education and administration and it irked vested interests who, in turn, combined together to oust the ministry through liberation struggle. The liberation struggle was succeeded with the dismissal of the ministry. But in fact the ministry was not dismissed due to the liberation struggle as believed earlier but it was the part of containment of Communism in Asia by the USA. The present study analyses how the American agencies overthrew the democratically elected government in Kerala with the backing of Union Congress ministers and Indian Intelligence Bureau.
