Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan stated today in the state legislative assembly that the government will not tolerate indiscipline in the police force. He was responding to MLA Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan’s allegation that the police headquarters is increasingly being noted for indiscipline.
The Chief Minister also informed the assembly that a review plea has been filed in T P Senkumar’s case. This action was taken based on legal advice. He further stated that there has been no delay in executing the apex court verdict. Regarding the money spent in TP Senkumar’s case, CM responded, “Money has to be spent in such cases, will reveal the exact amount that has been spent on the case later.”
Regarding Minister MM Mani’s speech in Munnar, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan told the assembly that a case has not been registered against him – the reason being that the statement was not an anti-woman remark. The Chief Minister was responding to a question raised in this regard. He also stated that MM Mani did not interfere with the eviction proceedings taking place in Munnar.
Earlier last month, women from “Pembilai Orumai” came into the spotlight after women members had taken to the streets, protesting against MM Mani’s allegedly anti-woman remark. The Opposition had demanded the Minister’s resignation. However, MM Mani had brushed off the allegations and categorically stated that he had not made such a statement at all and that in his 17-minute statement, the word ”woman” had not been mentioned even once.
Meanwhile, Manorama Online has now reported an internal factional feud between two groups of ”Pembilai Orumai” in Munnar. According to the report, both the groups have staked claimed over the collective’s office located in Munnar and they have approached the local police regarding this issue.
