Even since Facebook trollers and meme creators have heard that for Kerala sports Minister Jayarajan, Muhammed Ali is Kerala sports man, social media has been flooded with posts mocking the CPI M leader for his lack of awareness. The Malayalam troll pages in facebook have been abuzz with wide varieties of memes making fun of E.P. Jayarajan, who said in a telephonic interview with Malayala Manorama news that legendary boxer Muhammd Ali is a sportsman from Kerala and his death is a great loss to the state.
He did not stop at that. E P Jayarajan, who is a senior CPI(M) leader and also the industries minister apart from sports portfolio, went on to say that he remembered iconic boxing star Muhammed Ali as a sports star who won medals for Kerala in international tournaments. He expressed shock at the passing away of the legendary sportsman.
The incident took place when Manorama News channel called E P Jayarajan over the telephone, during their special broadcast on Muhammed Ali. He described how the achievements of the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali are cherished by the state as he won gold medals for Kerala. On behalf of Kerala’s sports community, the minister expressed his condolences, saying his death is an unbearable loss for the state.
Within minutes, people from the state took to social media ridiculing the number two man in the current Kerala government. Remember, Kerala is the most literate state in the country and the general level of awareness is high as compared to other states of the country. E P Jayarajan is member of the central committee of CPI(M), the highest decision making body of the largest left party in India.
