Humanity more important than politics; Innocent visits Benny Behanan
Kochi: "Humanity is more important than politics. He is my opponent in the Lok Sabha polls but first and foremost he is a human being," said Innocent, CPM candidate from Chalakkudy, after visiting Benny Behanan, his opponent and UDF candidate at the hospital after the latter suffered a heart attack.
Benny Behanan suffered a heart attack around 3.30 am on Friday and underwent an angioplasty at a private hospital in Ernakulam. Though Benny Behanan overcame the critical condition, he is being kept under observation for 48 hours.
“I spoke to Benny’s wife at the hospital. I had undergone angioplasty several years back. It was after I survived cancer twice. Back then I had doubted whether my body was capable of surviving an angioplasty. I came to visit Bennie soon after hearing the new because I have had the same experience,” said Innocent.
