Thiruvananthapuram: LDF MLA KT Jaleel has come out against Thalassery Archdiocese Bishop Mar Joseph Pamplany’s controversial statement assuring votes for BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, if the Centre raised the rubber support price to Rs 300 per kilogram.

Taking to Facebook, Jaleel wrote, “Is Rs 300 the value of 30 silver coins in the Modi period? Shouldn’t one have a head on the body to go and buy the rubber price offered by the BJP?”.

Meanwhile, CPM state secretary MV Govindan also slammed the bishop’s statement. However, BJP Kannur district president N Haridas asked why the CPM and Congress are worried about BJP leaders meeting with religious leaders.

“Why are they saying that religious leaders and BJP should not have talks with each other? BJP (leaders) have met with religious leaders before as well. We will do it again. There is no politics there,” Haridas said in a press conference.
