Thiruvananthapuram, May 29
Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday came out in support of Malayalam film actor Prithviraj Sukumaran, who is facing cyber attacks allegedly from right-wing outfits over his statement opposing reforms in Lakshadweep by the island’s administration.
“The sentiments expressed by the actor are that of the Kerala society… Prithviraj expressed it in the right way,” the CM told the media in response to a question.
Opposing the reform measures adopted by the island administrator, the actor had said he was receiving “desperate messages” from people he knew in Lakshadweep, pleading with him to draw the attention of the public to the issues there.
“How does disrupting the way of life of a centuries-old peaceful settlement become an acceptable means of progress? How will threatening the balance of a very delicate island ecosystem with no regard for the potential consequences pave the way for sustainable development?” he had asked. — PTI
