Manikandan from Erichanatham was handed over to police

A man created flutter at a meeting organised by the Communist Party of India on the 2G Spectrum scam by shouting at party State secretary D. Pandian here on Thursday night.

Srivilliputtur MLA and CPI district secretary T. Ramasamy said that the man climbed up the dais and came closer to Mr. Pandian and shouted, “Speak about you and not about us”. However, the leaders of alliance parties who were present nearby removed him from the stage.

Mr. Pandian had just then started talking about the Bofors issue, when the man, identified as Manikandan from Erichanatham, intervened.

Party cadre handed him over to the police. Leaders of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Communist Party of India (Marxist), Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Puthiya Tamilagam were present.
