THIRUVANANTHAPURAM Aug 24: Opposition leader Chennithala ha said that the other day he had only tried to point out the mistakes committed by the government over opening of dams in Kerala.
“Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan was using my FB posts as a weapon to cover up his flaws,” he said at a press conference here on Thursday.
“What I said on my FB post earlier was that regular opening of dam shutters would have avoided the calamity. Opening dam all on a sudden without proper warning had resulted in the destructive flood. This mindless action was what I had criticised. It was not a criticism for the sake of criticism,” Chennithala said.
He added that chief minister’s statement indirectly implies that people were responsible for flood-related miseries.
