T’PURAM: Noted thinker, linguist and anti-war activist Noam Chomsky has signed the petition seeking a fresh inquiry into the disappearance of Varkala Vijayan, a CPI (ML) activist during the emergency.
The action council formed to press for a fresh probe had petitioned Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan and Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan on the issue.
Achuthanandan, while he was the Opposition leader, had given assurances on reinvestigating the disappearance.
The samiti also posted an appeal in the website www.petitiononline.com, governed by Amnesty International and provided an option ‘click here to sign petition.’
Chomsky, who signed the petition, also sent an e-mail to the office-bearers of the Action Council.
