According to Meena, there is nothing defamatory in the minister's speech. He said that the commission came to a conclusion after going through the reports submitted by the collector and SP. The commission had also checked the video of Sudhakaran's speech and his later explanation about the speech.

The controversial remark was made by Sudhakaran during a family meeting in Thycattussery.
