Kochi : Opposition Leader VD Satheesan aimed threats at media over conflicts that erupted inside Congress, following the announcement of election candidate for Thrikkakara. ‘Congress leaders are being pursued with mikes and their reactions propagated. This must stop today!,’ said Satheesan shouting at the media.
“Early morning, with a stick in hand will head for a house in Thoppumpady, fetch a reaction and then ask us for counter response. This practice must stop,” said Satheesan at press conference in Kochi, apparently irked by media reporting KV Thomas’s reaction to candidate selection.
KPCC General Secretary Deepti Mary Varghese’s dissent over candidate selection published recently was prompted by media questioning. That has hurt her credibility, added Satheesan.
