Kochi | Congress mouthpiece Veekshanam has come out with a scathing attack of DGP Jacob Thomas. In its editorial published on Friday, the newspaper alleges that he is acting like Opposition leader.

It looks like Anna Hazare’s spirit has entered his body when he did not get his favorite post in Kerala police force, the editorial says.

The DGP is trying to adorn the image of a martyr by stepping down after provoking a disciplinary action, with an eye on a LDF candidacy in the next Assembly election, according to the Daily, published from Kochi.

It terms Jacob Thomas as insane, who needs to be given shock treatment at mental hospitals in Kuthiravattam or Oolanpaara.

The newspaper recommends 40 whiplashes of disciplinary action to Jacob Thomas.

The editorial concludes with a suggestion to dismiss the top police officer if he is not ready to confine himself in the limits of code of conduct of government officials.

Jacob Thomas had become a headache to the government by making critical comments

In a facebook post marking world anti-corruption day earlier this week, he expressed hope for a corruption-free rule in the state, reminiscent of the times of King Mahabali.

Jacob Thomas’ facebook post follows Chief Secretary’s report recommending that no action be taken against him for his criticism of the government in the bar bribery case.
