Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Assembly Speaker K Radhakrishnan on Sunday expressed strong reservation over the controversial remark of state Health Minister PK Sreemathi that there were even instances of MLAs coming to the house having taken drinks.

"The minister herself has stated that it was due to her misunderstanding that she said that. Still, my stand is that she should not have made such a comment. This is my position on the issue as the Speaker", Radhakrishnan told reporters here.

Sreemathi had made the comment during a meeting at Kannur last week, sparking protests from various quarters.

Last night she withdrew the statement holding that it was due to her misunderstanding that she made such a remark.
