Thiruvananthapuram: The State government’s stand not to hand over the Data Centre case to the CBI drew flak within the UDF.
Talking to reporters on Saturday, Chief Whip P.C George said the Cabinet decision to hand over the case to the CBI was overturned for the sake of T.G Nandakumar.
“The government decision, the order of which was not formally issued by the government, was sourced to Nandakumar by Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan. I had heard the minister talking to him over phone. There is conspiracy in the issue,” P.C George said.
Congress leader K. Muraleedharan said the government took the decision not to hand over the Data Centre case to the CBI without knowing the Congress.
“The government’s stand is against the party decision. The UDF’s stand is that there should be a CBI probe in the case,” Muraleedharan said.
Meanwhile, Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan played down the allegations raised by P.C George saying that he had not done anything wrong in the case.
“The government has not taken any decision to hand over the Data Centre case to CBI. How can I leak the information which was not decided by the Cabinet,” asked T. G Nandakumar rejecting the allegations of P.C George.
