Kerala High Court on Tuesday slapped a contempt of court notice against Minister KC Joseph of the UDF-led Kerala Government.  

The court has asked the minister to appear before the court on February 16 to answer the memo of charges in a criminal contempt case.

The court took suo motu action against the minister for his sarcastic Facebook post on July 2015 when he compared Justice Alexander Thomas to a "jackal who fell on the blue dye" and said that the judge sought ‘publicity’.

KC Joseph currently holds the portfolios of culture and rural development in the UDF-led government.

This came after Judge Justice Alexander Thomas criticized the functioning of AG's office, for the  non-implementation of HC's directions in various matters .
