In a video that is going viral, Shoranur MLA PK Sasi can be seen rebuking police officers over recurring CPI(M)-RSS clashes in Nellayi off Palakkad district, thereby triggering yet another row.
The MLA reprimands the Sub Inspector and Circle Inspector concerned, for allegedly extending tacit support to the RSS over the recurring clashes. The MLA was on a visit to the site when the local police got an earful from their political representative for not doing enough to control the situation.
â€śYou support these rascals who engage in such riotous behaviour We will do the needfulâ€¦we donâ€™t need any help from the men in khaki,â€ť he is heard saying in the video.
He goes on to vent his ire over the fact that the police seem to target only CPI(M) leaders and not the RSS when they are at fault.
When questioned about the rant after the video went viral on social media, the MLA told reporters that he was speaking on behalf of the public. â€śI did not abuse the police. What is seen is my response to the attack on CPI (M) workers by the RSS,â€ť Sasi clarified.
