LDF stages walkout from Assembly over attack on media persons

Thiruvananthapuram: CPI-M-led LDF Opposition members on Wednesday staged a walkout from the Assembly, protesting denial of permission for an adjournment motion, seeking discussion over the attack on media persons amid the Aruvikara by-election.

Replying to the notice of motion, sought to be moved by CPI-M leader P Sreeramakrishnan, Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala said the Congress-led UDF government would give protection to the media.

“The media enjoy complete freedom in the State. The visual media sometimes air false news reports. However, when the report is proved false, they should show the basic manners to correct themselves and air it again,” Chennithala said.

“The government does not think everything is secure just with the election win in Aruvikkara. We will correct if anything wrong is indicated in the government’s functioning,” he added.

After the minister's reply, the Speaker disallowed the plea for the motion, leading to the LDF members headed by opposition leader V S Achuthanandan staging walkout.

Before staging the walkout, CPI-M veteran and state Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan said the Chief Minister was functioning as a dictator. He said the UDF would have to face consequences if it unleashed attacks in the joy of election win.
