Not Time Yet To Project Chief Ministerial Candidate: MM Hassan

Kannur: For the election due to come, there’s no need to project a Chief Ministerial candidate and conduct propaganda at a time this early, said UDF Convener MM Hassan.

It’s not Congress’s style to to contest elections on  publicity over  potential  Chief Ministerial candidate, said Hassan. If some media is engaged in propping any individual in this light,  I would rather not respond on it, Hassan added.

Quizzed on “CM’s coat” remark, Hassan said, ask Ramesh Chennithala; It’s he that made the comment. Then, as if seeking to go easy, Hassan said “Ordinarily when Shashi Tharoor visits Delhi during winter and others as well, wear a fine quality Nehru coat. Did Chennithala mean that kind of coat or some other type of Nehru jacket, I can’t be sure.”
