Woman block panchayat president registers defamation plaint against party workers
Thiruvananthapuram: A woman block panchayat president has approached the Women's Commission and DGP citing usage of expletives and attempts to defame on social media.
V R Salooja, president of Parassala block panchayat in Thiruvananthapuram has registered the complaint against Chengal panchayat member Prasanth and KSRTC employee Shiju.
Salooja said the two had been running defamation campaigns against her with and without the help of social media ever since she took charge as the Parassala block panchayat president.
Speaking to Mathrubhumi News, Salooja said that being subjected to character assassination from members of the same party was hurtful.
Stating that she had submitted a complaint to the party officials, Salooja added that she sought legal action against the two based on directions from the party.
However, Chenkal panchayat member Prasanth said that Salooja’s allegations were baseless.
