Thiruvananthapuram: A day after the arrest of their supremeo Abdul Nasser Madai, PDP leadership today urged the Centre and Kerala government to ensure that their leader received proper health care in Karnataka.

"Our plea to Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan is that he should urgently take up this matter with the Karnataka Government", PDP working Chairman Poonthura Siraj told a press meet here.

He said the Centre should also intervene in the matter and ensure that Madani received humanitarian consideration as the reports coming from Karnataka, to where he was taken, caused anxiety, he said.

He said the party was not asking the government to intervene in the merit of the case charged against Madani as PDP was confident that his innocence would be proved in the court.

Siraj said the medical team that examined Madani the day before his arrest had suggested in their report that his health was poor and he required hospitalisation.

The PDP leader alleged the Karnataka police did not adhere the norms to be followed during the arrest.

His health condition was not taken into account .He should have been not produced before a nearest magistrate in such a circumstances proper medical care provided. Instead, he was brought to the state capital by road and then flown to Bangalore after several hours wait in the airport, Siraj added.

He said the party's leaders would meet next week and decide on the protest programmes. However, the protests would be organised in a democratic and peaceful manner without creating any sort of divisions in the society, he added.
