Thiruvananthapuram: Former Minister K.B Ganesh Kumar, MLA, Monday appeared before the Lokayukta in connection with the corruption charges against the Public Works Department headed by V K Ibrahim Kunju.
Talking to reporters after appearing before the Lok Ayuktha, Ganesh said he stuck to his stand on the corruption allegations against the Public Works Department.
“I’ve sought three months time to submit the evidences of corruption charges against the PWD Ministry and the Lokayukta has allowed this,” he said.
Ganesh Kumar of Kerala Congress (B) had alleged that the PWD Ministry was immersed in corruption.
Kumar raised the issue in the Assembly while speaking on a calling attention motion on the difficulties experienced by Ayyappa devotees on the non-repair of the Punalur-Muvattupuzha road, an important route leading to Sabarimala.
His outburst against the PWD Ministry had triggered noisy scenes with IUML members objecting to the remarks and Congress members joining in.
However, seizing the matter, CPI-M LDF opposition had rallied behind Ganesh on his demand for setting up an Assembly Committee to look into the charges.
