Malayalam actor and Pathanapuram MLA KB Ganesh Kumar lashed out at actor Salim Kumar on Monday, alleging that the latter has not yet resigned from the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA).
According to reports, Ganesh Kumar who is the secretary of AMMA, alleged that Salim Kumar continues to be a beneficiary of the organization.
After actor Mohanlal campaigned for LDF candidate KB Ganesh Kumar in Pathanapuram constituency in the run-up to the Kerala assembly elections, Salim Kumar had come down heavily on the former. On May 13, Salim Kumar had apparently resigned from AMMA pointing out that Mohanlal had violated the â€˜unwritten ruleâ€™ in AMMA that no actors would take part in election campaigning.
UDF candidate Jagdish and NDA candidate Bheeman Raghu, both actors, were the others who contested from Pathanapuram constituency.
"Everything was a sheer drama to gain media attention. Salim was in fact making a fool of the public by announcing his resignation," Ganesh Kumar was quoted as saying.
