Kerala Minister Saji Cheriyan resigns after backlash on remarks concerning constitution
Kerala minister Saji Cheriyan on Tuesday resigned from the state cabinet, a day after he allegedly made degrading remarks about the Indian Constitution. "I have resigned and it's my personal decision. I have never ever defamed the Constitution. A particular part from the speech was taken and the media fabricated it to weaken the CPIM and the LDF," Cheriyan said.
