THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala, who visited Sreejith, the brother of Neyyattinkara native Sreejiv who died during police custody, who has been on a hunger strike in front of the Secretariat demanding a CBI probe in his brother’s death, had to face a rather embarrassing situation.

The hopes of Sreejith seems to be fading as the CMO has informed him that the CBI has refused to take up the case as it is not rarest of the rare, even after the government approached them demanding the same.

The CMO has clarified that they have done all that is possible as requested by Sreejith and now the only way ahead of him is to approach the CBI via court.

Sreejith has also said that he would continue with his hunger strike until the CBI agrees to take up the case.

Meanwhile, political leaders have started visiting Sreejith as his protest started gaining attention in social media. Earlier the day, opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala visited Sreejith and offered him all legal help.

However, what should have proved as a political brownie point for Chennithala turned out to be a moment of embarrassment for the Congress leader as one of Sreejith’s friends stepped in and started talking.

He introduced himself as one of Sreejith’s friends and asked Chennithala some pertinent and embarrassing questions.

The conversation went like this:

“Can I ask certain questions if I may sir? This incident happened when you were serving as the home minister. Sreejith has approached you then and I too was with him,” said the friend.

“I had said the case would be probed,” said Chennithala.

The friend immediately replied: “That is not what you said sir. When Sreejith said he’s going to stage a hunger strike in front of the Secretariat you took a jibe at him asking him to stay protected from the dust and had also warned him against the mosquito attack.”

Chennithala replied by saying that he’d provide all legal help to which the friend asked whether that was the legal help he meant to offer.

The Congress leader was quite speechless at this and taking offence at this rather candid and unsuspecting volley of replies, he warned the friend against talking any further.

“Who are you talk about all this? You needn’t talk unnecessarily,” said Chennithala.

“I’ve every right to talk. I’m one among the public and also his friend. The public is watching all this. Don’t always try to fool the public,” Sreejith’s friend said.

And when the others at the protest spot started agitating, the Congress leader had nothing more to do but just walk away.
