Kerala Sports Minister EP Jayarajan recently said that the boxer Muhammad Ali had won gold medals for the state in his heydays.
“I just heard that Muhammad Ali died in the US. He was a prominent personality in sports in Kerala. He has won gold medal and made Kerala famous in the world of sports,” the minister told Manorama News TV Channel.
Adding to that, Jayarajan said that the boxing champion, who passed away on June 4, was ‘Pride of Kerala’.
As expected, he was trolled by social media users for his comments.
#ജയരാജൻ Lal Salaam Comrade. The Gold medal should go the ppl who made you sports minister.
