Kerala sports minister delivers a knockout punch, says Muhammad Ali got state many medals

Kerala sports minister E P Jayarajan praised Muhammad Ali for winning "many medals for Kerala in his heydays".

Muhammad Ali, Muhammad Ali dies, Muhammad Ali death, Muhammad Ali kerala sports minister, Kerala sports minister E P Jayarajan praised Muhammad Ali for winning “many medals for Kerala in his heydays”.

It was a knockout punch like the many Mohammad Ali executed during his career. And in hindsight it would appear like one of those television phone-ins Kerala sports minister E P Jayarajan should have avoided.

But he didn’t and the result was disastrous. Speaking to Manorama News the minister started by saying that he had just come to know of the death of Mohammed Ali in the US. He went on to praise the legend before adding the little detail that he had brought in “many medals for Kerala in his heydays”.

Yes, it was one call Jayarajan shouldn’t have taken.
