Days after the CPI(M) denounced a Catholic bishop’s declare of “narcotics jihad”, its LDF best friend Kerala Congress (M) on Sunday prolonged beef up to the bishop, pronouncing that he was once exhorting other folks to be vigilant in opposition to social evils.
Palai bishop Joseph Kallarangatt’s observation has polarised Kerala, with the CPI(M), Congress and more than a few Muslim outfits protesting the commentary.
However, in a humiliation for the CPI(M), Kerala Congress (M) chairman Jose K Mani mentioned, “There is some specific agenda behind making the statement a controversy. The bishop was telling the people that narcotics are a social evil. Don’t distort his statement,” Mani mentioned.
Incidentally, Palai is the fatherland of the Kerala Congress in addition to Mani.
