Former MP and senior Congress leader N Peethambara Kurup on Monday made racist remarks against Kerala Electricity Minister M M Mani.
At the Nedumangad Assembly constituency convention of Attingal candidate Adoor Prakash, Kurup abused Mani as “black Mani.”
The remarks came when he attacked Mani over the Kerala Floods of 2018. He argued the floods were manmade due to flawed dam management.
Kurup called Mani ‘black’ repeatedly while veteran Congress leader Thennala Balakrishna Pillai, candidate Prakash and around a hundred others were listening to him.
