Murickassery: Idukki DCC President CP Mathew made a threatening speech while inaugurating a protest of Congress against the state government here.
He said that he is leaving a 'gentle reminder' that the fate of Dheeraj should not follow the SFI members who attacked Rahul Gandhi’s office. Dheeraj, a SFI leader from Idukki Engineering College, was killed during a dispute with KSU during the campus election in January this year.
Youth Congress Mandalam Committee president Nikhil Paily is the prime accused in the case. The others in the accused list are also Youth Congress activists. They are currently out on bail. Congress had said that their workers were not involved in the case. It provided legal aid to all the accused.
‘I would like to remind the Marxists that Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s office is not a place where they can do anything as they please. CPM is trying to distract the public from the gold smuggling case by creating martyrs. That is why they have let SFI goons on the loose. Will not stand and watch the ongoing attacks against Congress,’ he said.
