Talaq issue: IUML seeks explanation from Kunhalikutty
Malappuram: The IUML leadership has sought an explanation from P K Kunhalikutty MP over his absence during the triple talaq session in Lok Sabha.
Panakkad Shihab Thangal directly sought explanation from Kunhalikutty after the IUML expressed displeasure over the MP’s absence in Lok Sabha during the crucial discussion. Kunhalikutty has been asked to explain the reasons for his absence during the discussion and voting on the triple talaq bill.
It is learnt the seeking of explanation was only a normal procedure from IUML. The party is not likely to take any further action against Kunhalikutty, who is the national secretary of IUML.
Kunhalikutty had abstained from the Discussion and voting on the triple talaq bill in Lok Sabha. The MP had gone abroad to attend a wedding. The issue became a controversy as both the LDF and INL criticised Kunhalikutty and IUML sought an explanation from him.
However, Kunhalikutty responded that certain people were spreading rumours against him which were not factually correct.
