Kozhikode: Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala Saturday said there was nothing unusual about his yesterday’s meeting with Finance Minister K.M Mani.
“There was nothing unusual about the meeting with him. It was only a courtesy call. We didn’t discuss anything regarding the bar bribe case during the meeting,” he told reporters here.
“As part of initial phase of the probe, the Vigilance has filed an FIR against Mani. But, the probe team has not yet concluded that he is a convict in the case,” Chennithala said.
"The law will take its own course in the case," he said.
On Friday evening, Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala had visited Mani at the latter’s official residence and held talks for around 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, the KC(M) legislature party Friday ruled out the question of Mr. Mani’s resignation in the wake of the Vigilance and Anti-corruption Bureau filing an FIR against him in the bar bribe scam.
