Constituncy, noted  film star Suresh  Gopi  for  their  apathy in handling Manipur riots.

                In a front  page article captioned ‘Will  not  forget Manipur’, the archdiocese said  the people  

 who believe in democracy can understand the  meaning of  the Prime Minister’s classical  silence on  the Manipur  issue.

                “As  the  Lok  Sabha elections  are  nearing ,  there  is  an effort  to hide  the  Manipur  issue.  The political  party which aspires  to  come  to  power at  the  Centre  once  again is  taking  efforts  for  this”, the article said.  

                A BJP  leader who wants  to take Thrissur said  “the people    ‘  here  need not be worry about Uttar  Pradesh  and Manipur  as there are vivacious boys( Chunakuttikal ) to handle  issues there” it  continued. 

                Ridiculing the  reported  statement Mr  Suresh  Gopi, the article asked  him  when Manipur  was burning  what were those vivacious boys  doing there .

The archdiocese  has the freedom  to  express its opinions”, he  added.

                The  ordinary  faithful here  are shocked to hear the reported statement of the archdiocese.

Though  the  monthly news magazine of the archdiocese started recently  it  has a circulation of well  over one lakh,  the archdiocese sources said.

The  print  line  of  the Catholicasabha  read  :  Printed  and Published by Fr  Davis  Thekkekara, Managing  Editor Fr Raphael  Akkamattathil , Editor   Fr  Paul Peramangalam and marketing Director   Fr Antony  Ammuthan.

                Certain senor  prelates  and priests here  described as  strange the  disowning of  the  article

passing the  buck  on   to  the   writer  of the  article  and they said it was tantamount to “plagiarism’.
