Jomon text of the
note: “BJP leader and former Union Minister Alphonse Kannanthanam’s mother died on June 10, 2020, at a hospital in Delhi.
Prior to that, his mother had been staying with Kannanthanam at his official residence in Delhi for some time. When the news of the death was officially reported on the channels and in the newspapers at that time, nowhere was it said that Kovid’s mother had died of the disease.
The body was laid to rest on Sunday, June 14, 2020, at Kannimala’s home in Manimala, Kottayam district. I had gone to Manimala from Thiruvananthapuram to attend the funeral that day. There was a secret rumor that Kannanthanam’s mother had died of COVID.
A BJP state general secretary had told me at the time that it was impossible for the Center to embalm the body of a man who had died of Kovid and brings him to Kerala by air. I am amazed that a person who died of COVID infection in Delhi was flown to Kerala as per COVID protocol and his body was cremated for public viewing. ‘
