Kerala’s Oppn leader Chennithala writes to PM Modi on Ahamed’s death
The hospital allegedly tried to cover up the status of his health condition and dithered on providing health updates to his family members
Kerala’s Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala on Thursday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding an inquiry into alleged attempt to cover up the status of Indian Union Muslim League leader E Ahamed’s health before his death on Wednesday.
“The entire episode has raised some serious suspicions among the general public. I am constrained to vent out my anguish and anger over the incident through this letter. Hence, I would request that a high level inquiry may be ordered to remove the suspicions behind the whole incident and to punish the erring persons,’’ he said, IE rported.
Chennithala alleged that the authorities at Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, where Ahamed was treated, “staged a high level drama with some malafide intention, most possibly at the connivance of some higher authorities, to cover up the status of his health condition and dithered on providing… health updates to his family members… This is also evident from the fact that his family members have been prevented by the hospital authorities from seeing Ahamed. It was alleged that the hospital authorities had taken such a stand after the visit of MoS (PMO) Jitendra Singh”.
