'A politician's shirt would never fit me': Kemal Pasha's words back then (see video)

kemal-pasha

KOCHI: Former High Court judge Justice Kemal Pasha on Saturday said that he would consider contesting the upcoming assembly elections as a candidate if invited by the UDF. He made it clear that he would like to run independently if he does not receive an invitation from the United Democratic Front.

Kemal Pasha had said that he wanted to contest in or around Ernakulam or Thrikkakara and that his salary wouldn't have to be paid once he became an MLA and would not allow anyone to commit corruption. He also stated that he is not interested in the LDF and BJP.

With this statement, the former High Court judge has gone backwards from a stand he had taken earlier. Pasha had earlier said that he would never wear the shirt of a politician and that this decision was taken because if he is contacted by any political party, he would not be able to disagree with them.

He said this in an interview with Kaumudi TV's Straight Line. 'A politician's shirt would never fit me. Suppose if I am affiliated with a political party, I will speak against them if there is such an opinion. They won't be able to stand it. I can not take a partisan attitude unless I can. '- Kemal Pasha said.

Kemal Pasha's reference to the Vyttila flyover was also controversial recently. Kemal Pasha's statement was that the bridge was not built by cutting coconuts in anyone's house but by the people's tax money. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had reacted harshly against this. The Chief Minister retorted that those who held high positions in the judiciary should not hold an umbrella for anarchy and corruption and that there was only one way to sympathize with it.
