KOLLAM: Sree Narayana College Retired Teachers’ Association in a statement has alleged that the controversies and furore associated with the unveiling of R Sankar’s statue were a sponsored one. The association observed that the decision of Vellappally to exclude Chief Minister Oommen Chandy from the programme attended by the Prime Minister, was nothing but a cheap PR trick.

“Vellappally is of the view that SNDP Yogam’s youth outfit may engage in inept protests once the CM attend the function. This is absurd. If there is a case like that then why don’t he try to discipline such outfits. Instead Vellappally succumbed to the demands raised by goon-like party members and humiliated the Chief Minister, thereby shaming the entire state.

"It will be inappropriate if the Prime Minister stand in front of the statue’s foundation stone which didn’t bear the name of the Chief Minister,” said J Chithrangadan, convener, Kollam Sree Narayana College Retired Teachers’ Association.

According to him, the way Vellappally acts is a constitutional violation and added that by excluding the Chief Minister of the state, the SNDP Yogam had alienated from the people of the state. “The Chief Minister as well as the Prime Minister are people’s representatives. There is no political tag attached with them when they address the state as well as the nation.

Our point is that it will be inappropriate for the Prime Minister to attend a function where the Chief Minister was shown the door,” added Chithrangadan
