Former state Police Chief T P Senkumar has come out against former ISRO chief Nambi Narayanan who has been conferred the third highest civilian award Padma Bhushan. He has questioned the Central government for awarding him with Padma Bhushan. He has also said that presenting award to Nambi Narayanan is like mixing poison with Amrutham. Now even Govindachami and Ameerul Islam can be given the Padma awards, he said mockingly.
The lone Keralite in the Narendra Modi Cabinet, bureaucrat-turned-politician K.J. Alphons, on Sunday expressed his ire at the way Malayalees behave and attributed it to a DNA issue where backstabbing is common.
“Malayalees have a characteristic of seeing things in a poor light, whenever another Malayalee achieves something. Malayalees have a DNA problem of backstabbing,” Alphons said while interacting with the media.
He was reacting to the manner in which former State Police Chief T.P. Senkumar, on Saturday called former ISRO scientist S. Nambi Narayanan a below average scientist. “Ask any ISRO scientist who is still working there about his contribution,” Senkumar added
“This attitude has to change, but do not know why this habit is so common among Malayalees. Malayalees should be happy that a fellow Malayalee has been recognised, but no Malayalee likes to see another Malayalee achieve anything,” added Alphons.
