Thiruvananthapuram: Janata Dal MLA M V
Shreyams Kumar today refuted the charges that he was behind a
conspiracy of accusing the family of CPI-M legislator P K
Krishna Prasad of holding excess land in Wayanad District.

"The contention of Prasad that I was behind the
propaganda that the CPI-M MLA`s brother was in possession of
excess land is totally baseless," Kumar said in a statement
here.

On the contrary, it was evident from the Taluk Land Board
documents that Krishna Prasad`s brother had in possession
excess land to the extent of 17.39 acres and it was bound to
be vested with the government, Kumar said.

"It is not my culture to conspire against anybody let
alone Prasad. It is difficult to know as to why Prasad is
making charges against me while there are documents that speak
the truth", Kumar said.

Both Kumar and Prasad are MLAs from Wayanad district
representing Kalpetta and Sulthan Bathery segments
respectively. Of late, CPI-M and UDF, to which JD belongs,
have been at loggerheads in the area over the issue of holding
excess land.
