Mani should restrain George, says Chennithala

Thiruvananthapuram: KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala on Wednesday said Kerala Congress (M) chairman KM Mani should restrain Chief Whip P.C George from making derogatory comments.

Talking to reporters here, Mr.Chennithala said George's ‘insulting comments’ against Congress leaders had demeaned image of the UDF Government headed by Oommen Chandy and his party should restrain him from making such comments.

"Goerge should stop insulting Congress leaders. As leader of Kerala Congress (M) and a senior functionary of the UDF, Mani should restrain him," Chennithala said.

Senior Congress leader K Muraleedharan also joined in the chorus asking Kerala Congress (M) leader and Finance Minister K M Mani to mandate George against making public statements which would only erode UDF's image and provide ammunition to Opposition LDF.

"George should be restrained. He is crossing the limits of coalition decency. If he is not restrained Congress knows how to handle him," Muraleedharan told reporters.

For quite some time, George has emerged as an open critic of the Chandy Government, especially when it was under the attack from the LDF over the solar panel scam.

Meanwhile, George justified his comments and said that he has been speaking on issues in view of the larger interests of the UDF. He also refuted the charge that his remarks gave ammunition to LDF to further its attack on the government.
