Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 17 (IANS) Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will speak to his Karnataka counterpart Siddaramaiah Sep 21 about Muslim leader Abdul Nasser Maudany, lodged in a Bangalore jail.
"He will be meeting chief minister of Karnataka when he is in Bangalore on the 21st of this month and the issue of Maudany, facing trial and in a jail in Bangalore, will be discussed," a close aide of Chandy told IANS.
Following this decision, Peoples Democratic Party (the party founded by Maudany) has decided to call off its planned Sep 25 hunger strike before the state secretariat here, said its leader Poonthura Siraj.
Maudany is in custody since August 2010 for his alleged involvement in the 2008 Bangalore bomb blasts.
Two people died while 20 were injured after a series of blasts went off July 25, 2008, in the Karnataka capital.
Maudany secured parole for a few days in March this year to attend his daughter's wedding and then returned to the jail.
