Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) leadership has demanded that a murder case be registered against CPM leaders who unleashed attack against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in Kannur on Sunday evening. “The CPM’s stance of protesting against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy by pelting stones at him is barbaric. The incident reflects the intolerance of the CPM towards the people-friendly programmes being carried out by the chief minister. CPM state leaders cannot wash their hands off as the attack has occurred in their presence,” said IUML national secretary E T Mohammed Basheer and state general secretary K P A Majeed, according to a statement issued here on Sunday.
Meanwhile in Thiruvananthapuram, KC(M) chairman Minister K M Mani said that by attacking an elected Chief Minister, the CPM has unleashed an attack on the people itself.
“The attack on the Chief Minister is highly deplorable and against the values upheld by democracy. The CPM should back out from such fascist acts,’’ K M Mani said.
