Vellapally's speech: Govt plans legal action

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  The Kerala Government is thinking about filing a case against SNDP yogam general secretary Vellapally Natesan for allegedly spreading communal hatred through his speeches.Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala told media persons that he had asked Home Secretary for a report in this regard

“The government is viewing his speech seriously. The general opinion is that his speeches are creating hatred and divide among communities. KPCC president V M Sudheeran had called me up to complain about Natesan’s speech. T N Prathapan MLA has also given letter, asking the government to file a case against Vellapally.  

Chennithala said the government’s assessment was that the Vellapally’s remarks were of serious nature. Further action will be taken after considering the legal aspect.  

Vellapally’s comment was that if one happens to die in Kerala, he should die as a Muslim. He made this comment in the light of the government giving Rs 3 lakh as compensation to the family of auto-driver Naushadh, who had died while trying to save two workers caught inside a manhole. The government had also assured his wife a government job.
