Will file defamation case against Teeka Ram Meena: Sreedharan Pillai
Thiruvananthapuram: BJP state president P S Sreedharan Pillai said he would file a defamation case against chief election officer Teeka Ram Meena for character assassination.
Stating that it was the BJP that decided the agenda of the Lok Sabha polls, Sreedharan Pillai said LDF and UDF, the two leading fronts in the state, had lost their prominence.
“Teeka Ram Meena lowered himself by inviting the media and stating that this is what the president of the biggest party in the country had said. He acted with malicious intent. I will file a civil and criminal defamation case against him,” said the BJP leader.
Sreedharan Pillai refuted that he had apologized over the controversial remarks he had made during the LS polls. “Teeka Ram Meena’s statement that I had apologized to him over my controversial remarks during LS polls is wrong. The election commission must not behave in such a way to any public representative,” he added.
