Kerala: Ex-MP Joice George withdraws remarks about Rahul Gandhi

After coming under fire for his sexually coloured remarks about Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, former MP from Kerala Joice George on Tuesday withdrew his comments and expressed regret publicly, even as the Congress demanded his arrest, while the ruling CPI(M) distanced itself from the remarks.

George had won as the CPI(M) supported independent during 2014 Parliamentary poll from Idukki, but lost to Congress's Dean Kuriakose in 2019 Lok Sabha polls. Distancing himself from the derogatory comments, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan made it clear that attacking Gandhi personally was not the LDF's stand. Soon after that, the CPI(M) state secretariat here issued a press statement stating that the Left Party does not agree with the remarks made by their ex-MP. While campaigning for Power Minister MM Mani, George, during his Irattayar speech, had said Gandhi would visit only women's colleges and the girls should be 'careful' while dealing with the former Congress President. The former Left independent MP's remarks came days after Gandhi had given Aikido lessons at the famed St Teresa's College in Kochi based on the request of a student. However, minister M M Mani justified George and said he had not made any anti-women remarks and only criticized Rahul Gandhi.
