Met Chandy to discuss solar project, says Sreedharan Nair

Thiruvananthapuram: In a jolt for Chandy in the solar panel scam, Sreedharan Nair, one of the complainants in the case, Monday claimed he had met the Chief Minister along with solar scam accused Saritha Nair and discussed his investment for a solar project.

Sreedharan Nair also said that It was at this meeting that he handed over Rs 40 lakh to Saritha.

“I met Ommen Chandy along with Saritha Nair on July 9. Tenny Joppan, former personal staff of Chandy, was also present during the meeting,” Sreedharan Nair said.

"He (Chandy) said it was good that you people have come for projects like this and I can go ahead stronglyAll government aid will be provided," he said.

Nair added that he paid Rs.40 lakh in three installments to Saritha Nair to erect a solar panel factory at Palakkad after being convinced that the project was viable.

His statement assumes significance in the wake of Chandy's assertions in the Assembly on Monday that he had met Nair only as a representative of a quarry owners association and had not discussed anything about the solar project.
