Justice not obtained from women’s panel, says Ramya Haridas

KOCHI: I didn’t get justice from the women’s commission on the complaint against CPM leader A Vijayaraghavan, said Ramya Haridas, who won the Alathur Lok Sabha seat. They didn’t even contact me on the complaint lodged. I will go forward with the complaint as per the directive of the UDF leadership, she said.

Meantime, the sexist remarks of Vijayaraghavan against Ramya may have influenced the voters of Alathur, said Minister A K Balan. The party will examine it. Vijayaraghavan made the controversial statement against Ramya during electioneering. While addressing a poll convention at Ponnani in Malappuram, Vijayaraghavan said Ramya visited P K Kunhalikutty after her candidature was announced. I don’t know what will happen to her now.

Soon after the issue stoked a controversy, she lodged a complaint at the DySP office in Alathur. His explanation was that he had not made any sexist remarks.
