Thiruvananthapuram: With the Opposition baying for his resignation on the solar panel scam, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Thursday said an expert panel would be constituted to examine the CCTV footage in connection with the solar panel scam.
“G Vijayaraghavan, founder CEO of Technopark, Dr Achuth Sankar, head of the Centre for Bioinformatics, University of Kerala, and the nominee of the CPM will comprise the three-member panel,” Chandy told reporters.
The Chief Minister has written a letter to CPI-M State secretary Pinarayi Vijayan to nominate a person of the party’s choice to the panel.
The Opposition CPI-M has been demanding the examination of the visuals to find out if Saritha S. Nair visited Chandy at his office in July last year. Ommen Chandy had warded off the Opposition’s demands saying the webcam in his office could only stream video live and did not record and store footage.
