According to Sreenijin, Twenty20 members stepped down from the dais when he was there to attend a public conference at Aikaranad panchayat. Apart from that Twenty20 members including Sabu have been making defamatory remarks against him in public functions, the complaint pointed out.

Meanwhile, Sabu has refuted that he has never shared a stage with Sreenijin, ever since the latter became MLA. He challenged Sreenijin to cite the incidents in which he has insulted him. Sabu has termed the case as a political witch-hunt.

The case is one of the latest developments that put the CPM-Twenty20 Kizhakkambalam tussle in the limelight.
