Thiruvananthapuram: Former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda on Monday said only an impartial probe by a judicial commission led by a High Court judge could come out with the truth on the solar scam and the Chief Minister should step down to make way for such a probe.
He was inaugurating a massive gathering of Left Democratic Front workers, who laid a siege in front of the Secretariat here.
"The government cannot move ahead with an undeclared emergency all the time in view of the people's struggle. At least Chandy should step down to come out from the tangle," Gowda said.
Thousands of Left protestors Monday blocked three of the four gates of the State Secretariat to press for Chief Minister Oomen Chandy's resignation.
