BJP state president V Muralidharan has said that Industry Minister P K Kunhalikutty’s efforts for Chief Minister Oommen Chandy’s intervention to facilitate the bail of PDP chairman Abdul Nasser Madhani is violation of the constitutional provisions.
Muralidharan told a news conference here on Friday that the then BJP Government in Karnataka had arrested Madhani on the basis of the reports from the Central agencies. Now with the present Karnataka Government’s stand that Madhani was a habitual criminal proves that the Central Intelligence agency’s report on Madhani was right.
“Also what the Karnataka Government did in this case has been proved right,” Muralidharan claimed.
“The Muslim League’s stand that the Kerala Chief Minister should impress upon the Karnataka Chief Minister is not right. It is against the Constitution to intervene in the judicial process,” the BJP state president said. He urged Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to clarify his stand on the issue. The BJP state president also criticised the move on the part of the authorities of the Education Department in North Kerala to change the school timings, to suit the Muslim students, in view of the fast during the Ramzan month. He pointed out that in the Malabar region, all the aided schools and government schools had started changing the timings to suit the Muslim students.
“In the process, several students from other religions are denied the midday meals distributed through the schools,” Muralidharan alleged. He said that in view of the CBI’s report on the police firing in Kasaragod, which occurred during the tenure of the LDF Government in 2009, giving clean chit to the police, the government should re-appoint the judicial commission.
