Sudheeran seeks judicial probe into Kinaloor incident

Kozhikode: Questioning the credibility of Industries Minister Elamaram Karim in �obstinately pushing the four-lane road to the Kerala State Industries Development Corporation Growth Centre at Kinaloor in the district, senior Congress leader V.M. Sudheeran, on Friday, demanded a judicial inquiry into the incidents that led to the �brutal violence� against the democratically protesting people at Kinaloor on Thursday.

Speaking to mediapersons at the District Congress Committee (DCC) office here after visiting Kinaloor, Mr. Sudheeran said the �insensitivity� shown by Mr. Karim to the genuine concerns of the people who voiced their protest against the road expansion project was a serious mistake and never acceptable in a democratic society. �I am totally convinced that some vested interest is involved in the whole deal,� Mr. Sudheeran said, asking �otherwise why is the Minister so obstinate and impatient in pushing for the road, completely overlooking the public protest.�
