ALAPPUZHA: Public Works Minister G Sudhakaran on Tuesday asked women to cut off the private parts of any man who tried to rape them.He was speaking at a loan disbursement programme organised by the Kerala State Women’s Development Corporation (KSWDC) at Town Hall here. He said some women devoutly followed godmen while essentially neglecting their own families.
“A section of women are supporting fake swamis and godmen in the state. They do not have time to look after their family but show interest in pampering fake swamis with food and goodies. Through this, they are inviting tragedies into their own family lives,” Sudhakaran said.
“This should be changed,” he said.
Sudhakaran also flayed some media outlets for hampering government’s development activities through false allegations.”Health Minister K K Shylaja inaugurated the function.
“The government will start a special project to ensure a healthy and peaceful life for inmates of old-age homes in the state. Countries like China have several successful projects for such inmates. Our new project will be on the lines of those initiatives. The preliminary work is on,” she said.
KSWDC chairperson K S Saleekha, managing director C V Bindhu, municipal chairman Thomas Joseph, district panchayat president G Venugopal, vice-president Daleema Jojo and Kudumbashree Mission district coordinator V J Varghese also spoke.
