Thiruvananthapuram: Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan turned furious at MLA Mathew Kuzhalnadan, who moved an adjournment motion notice to discuss the Karunagappally drug trafficking case. The chief minister said the Assembly should not be turned into a place to say whatever “nonsense” that comes to mind.

“The excise minister will respond to the allegations raised by the opposition. However, I will say this…, a member cannot turn the Assembly into a place to say nonsense about a party like the CPM,” Vijayan said.

The chief minister further said that there should be a “limit to everything” and it should not be crossed.

The opposition moved the adjournment motion alleging that the police were protecting the accused CPM leader in the Karunagappally drug case. This led to ruckus in the house.

Excise minister MB Rajesh responded to the allegations and said that the government would not take any stand to protect accused in the drug case based on their political affiliation. It is a fact that accused Shanavas’ lorry was used to traffic drugs, he said. But the police have not been able to find evidence connecting Shanavas and the case. However, the party took action against Shanavas considering the lapse on his side, Rajesh added.

Kuzhalnadan made several serious political allegations while moving the adjournment motion, which led to ruckus in the Assembly. Following this, the chief minister himself responded to the MLA.
