A commission comprising AN Shamsir, TI Madhusoodanan and N Chandran examined the controversy. There were allegations within the party that P Jayarajan was deliberately trying to cultivate personal influence. Criticism was raised in the state committee that P Jayarajan was not careful in these matters. After the matter was referred to the district committee, a three-member commission of inquiry was appointed to look into the matter.
A group of people from Kannur Thalappu who were working in Sangh Parivar organizations came to the CPM. They were known as the Comrades of Ambatimukku. The Ambatimukku comrades quickly became popular on social media as well. Meanwhile, large billboards depicting Pinarayi Vijayan as Arjuna and P Jayarajan as Sri Krishna were erected by Ambadimukku comrades. There have been several posts on social media highlighting P Jayarajan under the name PJ Army. There were also songs praising P Jayarajan. But P Jayarajan denied all this.

P Jayarajan’s failure to return to the post of district secretary after his defeat in the parliamentary elections and his refusal to give a seat in the assembly elections has sparked a public outcry on social media. Dheeraj Kumar, a prominent member of the Ambadimukh comrades who had publicly criticized the party leadership, was expelled from the CPM.
The CPM has denied any involvement in any of the comments made on social media in his name. Leader P. Jayarajan had already made it clear. P. J. Jayarajan said in a Facebook post that he has no connection with the group called Army.
