Oppn women MLAs to file complaint against UDF MLAs
18-03-2015

Thiruvananthapuram: Five women legislators belonging to the Opposition LDF have decided to file a complaint with the police against some of the UDF MLAs for alleged sexual harassment during the bedlam which rocked the Kerala Assembly on budget day.

LDF MLAs – KK Lathika, Jameela Prakasham, KS Saleekha, Geetha Gopi and ES Bijimol – will also lodge a complaint with the Central and State Women's Commissions and the State Governor in this regard.

The women legislators decided to take legal recourse in the wake of the Speaker taking action against the LDF MLAs alone for the ruckus. They alleged that UDF MLAs -- K Sivadasan Nair, M.A. Wahid, AT George, Dominic Presentation and Shibu Baby John -- insulted womanhood in the Assembly. They will seek maximum punishment for the legislators on charges of sexual offences.

The complaint will have a mention against the Speaker also. The complainants alleged that despite filing a complaint with him, the Speaker did not behave responsibly.

The police will have to take case against the UDF MLAs as it is mandatory to register FIR if women file complaints on charges of sexual harassment.
