BJP leader and Union minister Alphons Kannanthanam did a remarkable U-turn in a matter of minutes while discussing whether the Centre had warned Kerala about Cyclone Ockhi in time. Speaking to media persons after the meeting with Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, Alphons confirmed the state government's claim that the Centre gave them the cyclone warning only on November 30 afternoon. However, when he addressed the media again an hour later, after meeting some fishermen communities in Poonthura, Alphons drew a very different picture. Watch this Asianet Newsbale video to see how Alphons changes his stance in a matter of minutes.
