Govt files appeal against HC remarks on CMO

Thiruvananthapuram: The State government Monday has filed an appeal in the Kerala High Court, seeking to expunge Friday's remarks sharply criticising the Chief Minister and his office for lack of transparency.

The Advocate General, in the appeal, has argued that the version of the Chief Minister was not heard before delivering the verdict.

In strong remarks against the office of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, the High Court on Friday had held that authorities at the helm of affairs in the state have not been "prudent and responsible" in appointing personal staff with integrity and character.

"The Chief Minister's office should be a model institution serving the people of the State", Justice Harun-Ul-Rashid said, ordering a fresh CBI probe in two land grabbing cases against Salim Raj, former gunman of the CM.

The court also had said the Chief Minister was duty bound to explain to the people why there was a serious lapse on his part that he did not apply his mind when selecting his personal staff.
