THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala had some special guests at his chamber on Wednesday. They were students of Vimala English Medium School, Velloorkonam, Nedumangad, who visited the Minister as part of a study tour.

An interactive session was also held at the camber during which the Minister faced curious posers. The session started with a smart kid asking the Minister whether he would support his children if they wanted to enter politics. A bit surprised at first, but the Minister replied that he would not force them to do so.

Another one asked Chennithala to name a role model from the Opposition LDF. The Minister’s cautious reply was that he had friends in all political parties and there was no need to find a role model from the opposing parties.

Chennithala, however, went on to a detailed answer when asked about ‘Operation Kubera’, his pet programme against illegal moneylenders.

A little one asked the Minister about the transition from KPCC president to Home Minister. The kids burst into laughter when Chennithala replied: “As party president I had a limited role, but as the Home Minister I have the privilege of being accused for every law and order issue.”

The Minister advised the children to be duty bound by giving importance to studies. He advised them to abstain from the ills of tobacco and other intoxicants all through their lives.
