CPM secretary follows CM's path, hounds away woman journo


PALAKKAD: In the land of a chief minister who virtually chases away media persons using the terms like “Get Out”, “Move Away”, there is a district secretary who seems to be following his path.

The incident happened on Thursday in a rally organised by CPM, alleging corruption in the construction of Palarivattom overbridge. When a female reporter of a private channel sought his response on their protest march, district secretary C N Mohanan loses his temper and shouts at the reporter, “Move Away!”

Her only mistake was she asked how was the party planning to go ahead with the protests.

The woman reporter turned towards Mohanan only after getting the responses from senior leaders such as A Vijayaraghavan and P Rajjev.
