CPI-M should pack off Achuthanandan: Lalu PrasadDecember 2nd, 2008 - 8:10 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Dec 2 (IANS) A livid Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Tuesday said Kerala Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan should be “packed off” for his derogatory remarks at the family of commando Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who was killed by terrorists in Mumbai.“Such remarks are an insult to our martyrs and no one can take it lightly,” the minister told reporters here. “This is a very serious matter and I will talk to the CPI-M (Communist Party of India-Marxist) that the chief minister should be packed off.”
After the slain commando’s father virtually chased away the chief minister from his Bangalore house, Achuthanandan said that even a dog would not go to the house if there had not been a “martyr”.
Lalu Prasad added that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) should also “pack off” Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi for his “insulting remarks” about Indian women.
Naqvi had said that “some women wearing lipstick and powder have taken to the streets in Mumbai and are abusing politicians, spreading dissatisfaction against democracy”. He added that “this is what terrorists are doing in Jammu and Kashmir”.
