Cong. may raise “insult” to Chandy in House today

December 14, 2015 03:17 am | Updated November 17, 2021 01:01 am IST - New Delhi:

The issue of the reported “insult” to Kerala Chief Minister Oomen Chandy who was ‘disinvited’ to an upcoming event to be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is likely to be raised in Parliament by the Congress on Monday.

The controversy follows the alleged decision of the Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP), to withdraw the invitation earlier issued to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to attend the unveiling of the statue of former Chief Minister R. Sankar’s statue by Mr. Modi on December 15.

Congress spokesman Abhishek Singhvi described the action as pettiness and said the Prime Minister should refuse to go to the function.

Asked if the Congress could raise the matter in Parliament, Mr. Singhvi said “we have all options open.”
