Kerala Minister lashes at IAS officer for pulling down a erected cross

Kerala CM Pinarayi slams RSS drill exercise says kids given training to kill

The session was adjourned for the day after opposition legislators disrupted procedure. "Let them sit there as they have been placed there by vested interests", asserted Mani, who addressing a public meeting in Idukki on Saturday, said he knew what all went on during the strike by "Pembulai Orumae" (Women's Collective). According to The News Minute, they took to the streets in protest, and Gomathi Augustine, Pembilai Orumai's leader, lay down on the road and refused to move unless the minister met them and apologised publically. When the march reached near the venue, the personnel there stopped the march led by Youth Congress leader Rijil Makutty.

Earlier, Chennithala told the assembly that the state had been going through unusual circumstances of late.

The members of the pembilai orumai are sitting on a strike demanding that the electricity minister personally call on them and apologise for his derogatory remarks aimed at them.




Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan has described Mani's purported remarks as "inappropriate" and promised to talk to him. While the opposition demanded the ouster of Mani, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan and CPI (M) general secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan reportedly denounced Mani's statement. He added that Mani made the comments in his typical rustic style.

Meanwhile, the ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist's state secretariat, in which Mani is a member, is expected to meet to discuss this issue.

The opposition disrupted Mani's attempt to give an explanation. Women's commission member Prameela Devi, who visited the hill station of Munnar where the estate workers are holding the agitation, said the commission registered a case against Mani. Then there was the agitation by women belonging to Pombilai Orumai... Mani was also unsparing in his criticism of IAS officer Sreeram Venkitaraman, who is involved in removing encroachments in Idukki, Mani's home district. There is also an attempt from a section of CPM leaders to pit Lissy Sunny, a Penpilia Oruma leader, against Gomathy to create divisions in their ranks.
