ALAPPUZHA: KPCC president V M Sudheeran has requested the Governor to intervene in the incident at Kerala High Court in which media men were threatened and hounded away from its premises recently.
“The lawyers are acting like goons towards media persons. The incident that took place recently at the high court had shocked Kerala. The government’s silence and irresponsibility have been an impetus to the lawyers to block media persons and threaten them. Action should be taken against lawyers who show criminal behaviour, The government should urgently step in to restore media freedom,” he said.
Blaming the government for above incidents, Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala said the Opposition would not allow the government to kill press freedom.
