MLA Sivadasan Nair’s visit to Aranmula Temple ill intended, malicious: Kummanam Rajashekharan

published on August 24, 2013

Paithrikagrama Karma Samiti convenor Kummanam Rajashekharan has flayed the police move of registering a case of ‘attempt to murder’, in the incident where MLA Sivadasan Nair made an alleged uninvited visit to Aranmula to partake in the festivities in connection with Valla Sadya. Referring to the police move as ill-intended and malicious, Kummanam Rajashekharan lashed out, asserting that “only the shirt of the MLA was torn”, which is “now being distorted out of proportion.”

“The allegations are baseless and pertain to issues unheard of. The move of filing two cases for a single incident is a deliberate move to frame and torture those who are innocent. The first case that was registered spoke of a wireless set being destroyed, where nothing was mentioned about the shirt being torn. However, another case was registered after four hours based on the statement given by Sivadasan Nair. 8 innocent persons had to spend 22 days behind bars in connection with false allegations of public property and threat to MLA’s life being damaged being slapped on them,” said Kummanam Rajashekharan.

“The police were quick to file a case against 25 persons, who were in the vicinity. This is sheer breach of human rights and existing laws. It shows how the police, government machinery and the legal system have been misused to further nefarious needs. The MLA deliberately resorted to such means to wreck vengeance on a set of people, in order to sabotage the ongoing protests against the construction of the proposed international airport at Aranmula,” he alleged.

“The police personnel are showing such dedication in arresting those persons who merely tore a shirt. Wish the same dedication was shown in bringing to book the vandals who attacked the police station and destroyed the board of Janamaithri police station. Those who ransacked the homes of the leading figures of Samara Samiti are now scot-free,” lashed out Kummanan Rajashekharan.

Lashing out at the Kerala police, Kummana said that “this act being indulged in by the police, of mutely pledging their self respect in front of the whims of an MLA, show how low the police force has stooped. It is a matter of shame for the entire land.”

Seeking to know why the same enthusiasm was not being displayed in the case of PC George who was recently manhandled by Youth Congress activists, Kummanan said, “How come the same MLA Sivadasan Nair is silent about those Youth Congress activists who humiliated government chief whip PC George, by showering expletives at him and hurling rotten eggs at his car!”

Warning that no force can deter the protests against the malicious intentions of having an international airport at Aranmula, Kummanam Rajashekharan said that people’s support continued to pour in stronger than before regarding the protests.

“The protests will surge ahead with more strength and vigour than ever before. The people’s participation never has been and never will be deterred. They need not have the false hopes and dreams that the protests will soften or die down by falsely implicating our supporters and putting them behind bars. The MLA, MP and Vice Chairperson of the Rajya Sabha are equally guilty of conspiring to sell Aranmula,” he alleged.

“People like thse should remember that any public function in the place will never welcome their likes- the very same persons who stand guilty of being part of the larger conspiracy of destroying the sacred Pampa river, Aranmula Parthasarathy Temple, the sprawling paddy fields and consecrated groves. They should have understood and empathized with the general public sentiments and refrained from coming down uninvited,” he said.
