Thiruvananthapuram: The CPI-M on Tuesday said that Chief Minister Oommen Chandy should apologise to the people in the state over the Kasturirangan report issue.
“The chief minister has been duping the people in the state over the issue. What he does is a tactic to bag the votes of them,” said the Marxist party in a press release.
The chief minister should reveal the truth and honestly try to resolve the issues, the release said.
The decision of the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) that informed the Green Tribunal that its November 13 office memorandum based on Kasturirangan report would stay, has put the Congress-led UDF on the backfoot.
The Congress leadership in the state, particularly Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, had repeatedly claimed that the November 13 order was invalid and only the draft notification on the Kasturirangan report would stay.
