Kozhikode: Bharatiya Janata Party Kerala state president K Surendran’s comments against women leaders of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) triggered a political row between Congress and CPM.

Congress state vice-president VT Balram on Monday alleged that CPM leaders were not reacting to Surendran's comments. Opposition leader of the Kerala Assembly, VD Satheesan, on Tuesday said that if CPM is not suing Surendran, Congress might. Within hours, Youth Congress state secretary Veena S Nair filed a complaint with the chief minister.

The BJP leader while attending an event of women leaders of the party (on women empowerment) the other day said that women leaders of CPM have become “putanas” (demon from Hindu mythology) by looting state money. He said they cheat Kerala women.

Meanwhile, the CPM-affiliated Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) on Tuesday announced they would take legal action against Surendran. DYFI state secretary VK Sanoj said Surendran was a “political waste.” His comments originated from his hatred of Kerala and women, said Sanoj.

Minister Mohamed Riyas said everyone talks according to their culture. He said the responsible people would decide legal actions against Surendran. He also slammed Congress saying "they politicise even abuses."

A month ago, Surendran had said that Chintha Jerome, Kerala State Youth Commission chairperson, should be beaten with a broom dipped in urine.
