Cong MP faces ire over decision to appear for Thomas Chandy

Congress Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Tankha faced the ire of Youth Congress workers as they staged a protest here against the senior Supreme Court lawyer’s decision to defend Kerala’s beleaguered minister Thomas Chandy in the encroachment case in the Kerala High Court.

A group of Youth Congress workers raised slogans and waved black flags at Tankha as he stepped out of a posh hotel in Kochi to proceed to the High Court, police said.

A small group of Youth Congress workers were detained for allegedly trying to stop his car at the hotel gate, they said.

Congress leaders including former PCC Chief V.M Sudheeran and Leader of the Opposition in Kerala Assembly, Ramesh Chennithala have expressed their displeasure over the Madhya Pradesh MP’s decision to defend Chandy, an NCP nominee in the CPI(M)-led LDF government.
