Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 11 (UNI) Opposition leader in Kerala Assembly Ramesh Chennithala has strongly criticised CPI(M) MLA S Rajendran's abusive language against Devikulam Subcollector Ms Renu Raj.
The Devikulam MLA landed into a controversy when a team of Revenue Department officials reached Munnar Grama Panchayat in Idukki district to issue a stop memo to an under construction shopping complex, Ramesh said in a press release here on Monday.
The MLA used abusive words against the Subcollector when she came to take action against the illegal construction in Munnar, Ramesh added.
