Kerala: Women commission booked Kannur candidate for sharing sexiest video

Kerala Women's Commission (KWC) Wednesday registered a case against K Sudhakaran, Congress candidate from Kannur, for sharing a video with "anti-women" content on his Facebook page. A suo motu case has been registered against Sudhakaran on the basis of media reports.

The case was registered as directed by chairperson M C Josephine, a release issued by the Commission said. The video, shared by Sudhakaran in the social media, shows an aged patriarchal man saying it was a mistake to send a woman there (indirectly referring to Parliament), who was educated as a teacher, as she was incapable of getting things done.

Sudhakaran had shared the video along with a disclaimer saying it does not refer to any characters, dead or alive, or "those who have made speeches in Parliament." Kannur district is witnessing a replay of a fight between veterans of the Congress and the CPI(M). CPI(M) candidate P K Sreemathi, who is often referred to as Sreemathi teacher, had won the seat last time defeating Sudhakaran with a margin of around 6,500 votes.

Earlier, Sudhakaran had courted controversy over his anti-women remarks while targetting Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. He had said the Chief Minister had failed to act like a man when it came to running his office and his tenure was worse than that of women.

Meanwhile, Remya Haridas, the Congress candidate from Alathur constituency has moved a local court in Palakkad alleging the "lackadaisical" attitude of police in a case filed by her. Haridas had filed a case against LDF convenor Vijayaraghavan, who had allegedly made some sexist remarks against her. Though her statement was taken by police, no further action followed, she said.
