Flip-side of State budget 2020: Adv Hareesh Vasudevan slams LDF govt for allotting Rs 5 cr, 50 cent for K M Mani’s memorial

Critic and Advocate Harish Vasudevan has come down heavily on the State government for allotting money for building a memorial for former finance minister and Kerala Congress (M) founder K M Mani.

On his Facebook page he writes (Translation of excerpts) :

The son’s (K M Mani’s) demand is to allot 50 cent and Rs five crore in Pala (where land price is lakhs/cent) for the trust which includes him, his father majesty, Subhadra.
What is the general dharma (duty) of this trust?

A research centre should be established in the name of K M Mani who made people call him the biggest corrupt person Kerala has ever seen!!
After that, the tenets of working class should be taught to people!!

If Jose K Mani wants to build memorial, he should collect fund from party workers. Instead, why is he coming to loot the public exchequer??

And here, there are the LDF government and Thomas Isaac to allow that!!

The case against Mani was closed only because he died. People had to bear the loss when corruption was committed and it was investigated. Now after he died, if the government says that the public will also have to bear the expense for building trust, it is an utter nonsense…

If Pinarayi Vijayan is so adamant about it, let him pay it out from the LDF fund as the treasury money is not the money brought from Karingozhakkal tharavadu
Which law has given you the right for this? If you want to placate Kerala Congress, use party fund or the amount it has collected through bucket-collection?
This will not be allowed…. I will question this in court….”
