Kottayam DCC president slams KM Mani at KPCC meet

06tharoor2Thiruvananthapuram: On a new set back to the Finance Minister KM Mani, DCC president Tommy Kallani has come down on Mani saying, common people will not believe that Mani did not accept bribe.

Tommy made this statement at the KPCC meeting held here on Tuesday at Indira Bhavan.

Apart from V M Sudheeran, chief minister Oommen Chandy, home minister Ramesh Chennithala and other leaders also attended the meet. It was Chandy who spoke first stating the UDF `black day’ observed on Monday was a success.

But countering the opinion, Tommy asked if in Kottayam and in Pala, it was a black day or a protest day. That implies even small children believe Mani had accepted bribe in the bar issue. Even in Pala, Kerala Congress did not observe `Black Day’.

Tommy even wondered why the Congress was backing Mani to this extent. In the Assembly, V D Satheesan and V T Balram, among others, did not back Mani. On the budget day on March 13, T N Prathapan refrained from attending the session.

Tommy said all these persons were not interested in supporting Mani.
