Of late, Sreekumar, 68, is a member of the CPI’s district executive committee and its treasurer too. He has served as personal assistant to former ministers Dr A. Subba Rao and V.V. Raghavan besides Deputy Speaker P.K. Gopalakrishnan.

Sreekumar was elected to Thrissur District Panchayat from Kattoor division in 2000 and 2005. In his first stint, he served as vice-president to the local body and then as its president during the second tenure.

Having also served the District Planning Committee, Shri Sreekumar is also a cultural enthusiast. His wife, Pushpavathi, is a retired Junior Superintendent with the state’s Irrigation Department.
