After Kiss of Love, Kerala has been making headlines for yet another innovative campaign; this time against the allegedly corrupted State Finance Minister KM Mani. Noted Malayalam film-maker Aashiq Abu had earlier initiated the idea with the name #Entevaka500 on his Facebook page.
On Monday, organisers of Kiss of Love led by Rahul Pashupalan and many others went a step ahead by literally begging money from the public to send it to the minister, who is said to have collected ₹2 crore bribery related to the 'bargate' controversy.
Protesters gathered in Kochi MG Road on Monday at 10am onwards to beg money for the minister, and it turned out to be a successful event.
Reports suggest that the organisers have planned to send ₹240, which they collected from the event, as a money order to the minister's home address at Pala, Kottayam.
Mani, who has a five-decade-long political career in Kerala, had allegedly guaranteed bar owners to offer a lenient liquor policy in the state.
Meanwhile, a video of an Afghan, who is speaking in Malayalam and requesting Mani and Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to resign from their respective posts, has also gone viral on social media platforms.
