As Kerala is busy arranging isolation and quarantine facilities for arriving diaspora and those from within the country, a controversy has broken out after five Congress lawmakers — three MPs and two MLAs — who visited the Walayar check-post in Palakkad on May 9 were asked to go for two-week isolation.

When the news surfaced, the Congress accused the ruling CPI-M of playing politics during the coronavirus times.

Soon, the Youth Congress approached the Thrissur District Medical Office demanding that Minister of Local Self-Government A.C. Moideen should also be quarantined as he had interacted with two persons, who have now turned Covid-19 positive.

In its complaint, the Youth Congress said Moideen had interacted with those who had arrived in Guruvayoor, where they were put in isolation, after arriving at Kochi on May 7 in the first evacuation flight from Abu Dhabi.

It also submitted visuals that show Moideen interacting with them at the hotel, where they had been put upon arrival.
