Kochi: Industrialist Kochouseph Chittilappilly has come down heavily on Ms. Jazeera for holding a sit-in in front of his house, saying that it is a sponsored stir.
Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, Chittilappilly said the amount would be deposited in a joint bank account of Ms. Jazeera and her children.
“It is clear who is behind the sit-in protest of Ms. Jazeera, who had even said she would contest against Abdullakkutty in the next election,” Chittilappilly said at a press conference here.
“I stick to my stand,” he said when asked about any reconciliation effort to end her protest.
Jazeera, a housewife from Kannur district who gained media attention following an agitation in New Delhi against the sand-mining mafia, on Monday started a sit-in in front of the house of Kochouseph Chittilappilly.
Jazeera is holding the dharna demanding the cash award of `5 lakh that Kochouseph Chiittilappilly had promised her.
