Idukki: CPI(M) state secretariat member M.M.Mani, who courted huge controversy over his comment on the `party’s killing spree’ in Idukki estates in 1980s, has grabbed media attention this time over unsavoury remarks made against the principal of women’s polytechnic at Painavu in the district.
The police have registered a case against `Mani Assan’ on charges of uttering abusive words against the principal.
Mani had made the speech at Cheruthoni while addressing a protest march of SFI workers against the police action of booking two SFI workers in connection with the clashes that erupted in the polytechnic campus.
What provoked Mani to vent verbal anger on the principal was the fact that the police took action against the SFI students on the basis of the complaint of the principal.
Mani allegedly showered abuses on local Sub-Inspector of Police for acting against the SFI.
