    • He told the party-controlled TV channel Kairali that “I realised that me going for the RSS function was a mistake. It should not have taken place. I would not repeat the mistake”.  


      Padmalochan’s unconditional apology came a day before the Kollam district committee of the party would decide on whether the senior leader should be served with a disciplinary action. Soon after the incident, Kollam district secretary K Rajagopal had expressed the party’s displeasure over Padmalochan’s presence at the RSS function.
