Statue unveiling function: K C Joseph says PMO acted suspiciously

Thiruvananthapuram: Amid controversy over withdrawal of invitation to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to the statue unveiling of former Chief Minister R Sankar, the state government has come out with explanation saying the way the Office of the Prime Minster acted raised suspicion.

Talking at a press conference here on Wednesday, Information and Public Relations Minister K C Joseph said the unusual approach from the Office of the Prime Minster on the issue was suspicious. “The PMO kept on asking if the Chief Minister would attend the function. The Prime Minister did not discuss the matter with the Chief Minister even after the issue became a controversy. The state government has not yet received the letter Union minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy showed in the Lok Sabha,” Joseph said.

“The Chief Minister kept away from the programme as the organizers asked him to do so. SNDP general secretary Vellapally Natesan should explain on what base he withdrew the invitation to the CM,” he said.
