Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 24 (IANS) Popular pop singer Usha Uthup said she and her supporters were hurt by a remark of Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan. Vijayan, irritated by his party workers who had gone berserk during a public meeting at Kottayam last week, admonished them that it was not Usha Uthup’s programme but the meeting of the communists.

“I don’t think it was an ordinary remark. It has hurt me. Responsible people should not make such remarks. I have no political agenda. My agenda is only music and through it to make people happy,” said the singer to reporters here Sunday.

The people in the crowd were seen dancing with the photo of Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan during his address at the concluding day of the four-day party conference at Kottayam.

Vijayan had said that they should behave like disciplined communists and not like drunkards.
