It was a much-harassed Antony's statement at Thiruvananthapuram airport that triggered the latest row. Returning from the Congress conclave in Shimla, Antony faced a volley of questions on why he wasn't reacting to Praveen Togadia's statement that the VHP would not allow Muslims who fled Marad—after a communal flare-up—to be rehabilitated. Antony sidestepped the questions. Then he was asked whether he too was playing the soft Hindutva card like Digvijay Singh in MP and Ajit Jogi in Chhattisgarh?

Pat came Antony's reply: "We should see the reality in Kerala. The organised minorities secure more benefits from the government using their collective power. Other communities have a complaint that they bargain too much."
