Kozhikode: LDF candidate in Vadakara, P Jayarajan said that independent candidate COT Naseer did not give statement that CPM activists attacked him.
Speaking to media persons after visiting Naseer at Baby Memorial Hospital here, Jayarajan said that Naseer mentioned the same to him at the hospital.
“Naseer said that three persons attacked him. The incident is not related to the Lok Sabha election. The allegations are a deliberate attempt to trap CPM. The party did not expel Naseer. He did not renew his membership and was excluded automatically. We have no enmity towards him,” said Jayarajan.
“Naseer’s brother is still a CPM activist. KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran’s statement alleging my involvement in the incident is baseless. Such allegations have been made against CPM many times in the past. But they will not succeed. Stringent action should be taken against the culprits,” said Jayarajan.
