Daily Report. Read the last paragraph, it is clear that
Jacobites blocked the road with dead body, which cannot be
tolerated by any family who respect the departed. Moreover, the
departed was an orphan. They could have left the body atleast at
the Cemetery and gone ahead with their customary road blockage
for which they are notorious for.
The news paper
Mangalam further blames the Orthodox church and appreciates the
Police and the Jacobites for their patience, which means the
news was reported by a 'Satya viswasa samrakshakan' who always
propagates false and baseless report. Mangalam feels they are
playing the role of Manorama for the Puthencruz Society. But
Mangalam need to realise Manorama only supported the truth and
not baseless lies like Mangalam does nowadays.
