Congress spokesman Rajmohan Unnithan landed in a controversy, after he stated that the LDF workers who try to prevent the Chief Minister from attending the mass contact programme, will meet the fate of activists who died in the Koothuparamba firing.

“If Oommen Chandy’s freedom of movement is blocked, Koothuparamba will be repeated. Five persons were killed in the police firing when they tried to block then Minister M V  Raghavan.

“One of the injured is still lying on his bed, unable to get up,” Unnithan said. He was addressing Congress workers at Cheruvattoor near on Kothamangalam on Sunday night.

The LDF workers on Monday had decided to prevent the Chief Minister from attending mass contact programmes in all districts.

The firing at Koothuparamba town in Kannur district on November 25, 1994, after the inauguration of the Co-operative Urban Bank’s evening branch had resulted in the death of five DYFI workers. The incident happened when the UDF was in power.
