Home Minister Rajnath Singh dismissed the charge as 'baseless' and said the decision to withdraw the invite to Chandy for the event in Kerala tomorrow was taken by SNDP, a social organisation which is hosting it, due to its 'internal row' and the government had nothing to do with it.
The Speaker was forced to adjourn the House earlier due to the uproar over the issue, along with the protests by AAP members against demolition drive in the national capital. KC Venugopal (Cong) raised it during the Zero Hour soon after the House reassembled noon.
"It is an agonizing issue which has seriously affected emotions of people of Kerala and the country. It is a serious breach of political morality... Due to the unfair political move by the ruling party at the Centre (BJP), he (Chandy) was dropped. The entire state is shocked and agitating,” Venugopal said.
"The PMO or the Prime Minister has a hand in this. Humiliating the Chief Minister is humiliation of Kerala. The constitutional position is being used for political vendetta," Venugopal added.
