No move to remove Thiruvanchoor from post, says Chennithala

Kochi: KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala on Saturday denied reports about removing Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan from the post in the backdrop of the solar scam.

“We conducted a meeting with the Home Minister regarding the progress of investigation in the solar case and there are no issues on his continuing in the post,” Chennithala told reporters.

Chennithala also said that ADGP had been asked to investigate reports on leakage of phone call details of some Ministers with the solar scam accused Saritha S Nair.

The Home Minister had landed in a spot after media reports surfaced that he had made a call to Saritha in May after a case was initiated against her and the con woman had also allegedly made several calls to him earlier.

The scam pertains to fraudulent deals running into huge sums pushed by Saritha and accomplice Biju.

Allegations had also come to the fore stating that the Home Minister along with a key figure in Chandy's office was instrumental in releasing the call list details involving a faction of Congress leaders and some in his own group in the Congress.

Asked about reports about solar scam accused having high political connections, he said just by perusing the phone call details one cannot say that Ministers and other politicians were involved in the case. One needs to look if government has granted any kind of assistance to the company, he said

Chennithala said Chief Whip P C George needs to show "some maturity and patience" and should exercise caution while making comments.

On the issue relating to JDS MLA from Angamally and former LDF Minister Jose Thettayil, who is embroiled in a sex scam, he said the opposition Left Front was not confident of facing another byelection which was why they were not demanding the resignation of Thettayil, who has gone into hiding since the scam broke out two weeks ago.
