Cong MLA Manhandled by RSS Workers in Kerala

Congress MLA K Sivadasan Nair was today roughed up allegedly by a group of RSS workers, who were protesting against the proposed greenfield airport at Aranmula in the district, at a function here, police said.

Nair was manhandled by the workers said to be activists of Aranmula Paithruka Grama Karma Samithi (APGKS), a pro-Sangh parivar outfit, when he came to attend a function at a temple in Aranmula, they said.

The MLA's clothes were torn in the incident and he was admitted to the district hospital, police added.

APGKS has been formed to protect and conserve the environment, nature and heritage and it has been on an agitational path against the airport holding that the project would endanger the environment of the area.

Local Congress leaders have called for a 12-hour hartal tomorrow in the district protesting the attack on Nair.

'Puppy' Modi can rest assured no one will accuse him of this attack.

The people here dont even know him!

Given the animosity of the media, this attack may not even get any publicity!
