'Malayalees have a DNA problem: Union minister Alphons

Jan 27, 2019 23:03 IST

Union Minister KJ Alphons on Sunday courted controversy saying "Malayalees have a DNA problem". Alphons remarks were in an apparent reference to former State Police Chief TP Senkumar's remark on ISRO scientist S Nambi Narayanan. The minister said that "Malayalees have a characteristic of seeing things in a poor light, whenever another Malayalee achieves something. Malayalees have a DNA problem of backstabbing." Senkumar on Saturday called former ISRO scientist S Nambi Narayanan, who has been awarded a Padma Bhushan, a "below average scientist".
