Pinarayi Vijayan seeks Chandy’s resignation

Kasaragod: CPI-M State secretary Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday said that chief minister Oommen Chandy should step down in the wake of the Advocate General’s revelation that the CM was questioned by the SIT in connection with the solar scam case.

“The SIT questioned him as they might have got clear evidence against him in the case,” Vijayan said adding the CM should resign and face judicial investigation.

Advocate General K.P. Dandapani had on Wednesday said that a statement was taken from the Chief Minister by the SIT probing the solar scam.

The AG told this to the high court while responding to a petition filed by activist K. Joy demanding that the CCTV installed in Chandy's office be seized to examine if one of the accused in the case, currently lodged in jail, had indeed met Chandy along with businessman Sreedharan Nair.

Sreedharan Nair, one of those defrauded in the case, complained that he had lost money he entrusted to a couple who promised him an agency to manufacture solar panels. He had asserted that he had even met the chief minister accompanied by Saritha Nair, one of the accused in the case.

Dandapani told the court that a statement had been taken from Chandy to ascertain if such a meeting had occurred.

Asked why a statement was taken from Chandy when no complaint had been lodged against the chief minister in the case, the advocate general replied that the exercise was undertaken to ensure transparency in the investigation.
