Kozhikode (Kerala) – K. Sudhakaran, Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee President, expressed regret and withdrew his objectionable statement about Ramayan. He was being criticised for his statement.
1. While giving an interview to a Daily, Sudhakaran was asked, ‘How are the Political leaders of the Malabar region different from those of Central Kerala ? Sudhakaran replied, ‘while returning from Lanka after Shriram killed Ravan, Lakshman was thinking of pushing Shriram into the sea and proceeding with Sitamata to Ayodhya. When they reached Central Kerala, these thoughts stopped coming to him. Shriram noticed the thoughts in Lakshman’s mind. He told Lakshman that he had not committed any mistake, the thoughts were because of the land (South Kerala).

2. When Sudhakaran was criticised by BJP and leaders from other parties for this statement, he apologised for making the statement and withdrew his statement. He said I had heard this story in my childhood and I repeated it. It was not my intention to create a rift between people or to show some as inferior.
Hindus should teach this Congress, which again and again hurts their religious sentiments, a lesson through the ballot box !
