Kerala court issues summons to four Congress legislators

Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 19 (IANS) A court here on Saturday issued summons to four Congress lawmakers on a complaint by two women opposition legislators alleging the ruling party members had molested them on the floor of the assembly on March 13 when the 2015-16 budget was presented.

The Congress legislators asked to appear before the chief judicial magistrate court here on April 20, 2016 are Dominic Presentation, K.Sivadasan Nair, A.T.George and M.A.Waheed.

Jameela Prakasham and K.K.Lathika, in their petition, said that they had approached the court after no action came on their complaints to assembly Speaker N.Sakthan and Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.

The two were among five women legislators of the Left Democratic Front, who were in the forefront of the protest in the house on March 13 against state Finance Minister K.M.Mani presenting the budget since he was an accused in the bar scam case.

The Congress-led United Democratic Front had however asserted that they would go ahead since it was a constitutional obligation.

Absolute chaos prevailed in the floor of the house with the opposition making every attempt to prevent Mani in presenting the budget and in the melee, women legislators came under attack from the ruling front legislators and later claimed that they were molested.

They had named these four legislators.
