The Ambalapuzha Police has initiated further action against PWD Minister G Sudhakaran over the complaint filed by the wife of a former staff member saying that the minister made insulting remarks against women and created communal tensions.
According to reports, the police have asked the complainant to present the video footage of the news conference where he had made anti-woman remarks. Also, the police have sought legal advice over the complaint. At the same time, all the efforts made by the party leadership to resolve the issue seem failing.
Earlier, attempts were made to settle the issue in the presence of the district secretary. However, the complainant was holding to her complaint and said that the minister had insulted women and abused her.
Earlier, Sudhakaran alleged a conspiracy to tarnish his political image and career. The PWD Minister claimed that a gang is behind the conspiracy to tarnish his political career. He alleged that members of other parties are involved.
While interacting with media, he said, “My family and I are targeted despite our attempts to stay away from controversies. My wife was threatened, and they want to insult my political career."
Meanwhile, serious allegations were raised against G Sudhakaran during the party meeting. Sudhakaran was accused of helping UDF candidate M Liju in Ambalapuzha. The meeting reportedly even demanded action be taken against the minister for speaking in an insulting manner to women.
According to reports, the Purakkad local committee convened at the party's district committee office was looking into the high-profile complaint against the minister. Out of the 12 local committee members who attended the meeting, 11 spoke out against the minister. Even some leaders claimed that the minister in the past had insulted women and stressed that the issue is an organizational warning.
