Former finance minister K M Mani’s mortal remains will be brought to Pala on Wednesday. The last tires will be performed on Thursday with full state honour.
Mani, who represented the Pala constituency for the past 5 decades in the state Assembly will be given a remarkable send-off.
Even Mani’s critics will never dispute his love for Pala. Whoever has passed through the town would definitely have said something about the roads. Every road is rubberised and well maintained.
Mani himself have told once that he has two wives: Kuttiyamma, and Pala. Now, he abandoned both. Authour of three books- Fiscal Problems of Kerala: Causes and Remedial Measures, The People’s Socialism and The Eighth Five Year Plan: An alternative approach- Mani always spoke for the rubber farmers in the hilltop.
The procession from Kochi will pass through Thripunithura, Vaikom, Thalayolapparambu and Ettumanur and will reach his house around 6 pm after keeping the remains for public viewing at several places.
