Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Oommen Chandy Sunday said senior Congress leader A. K. Antony’s statement urging everyone to be vigilant against corruption should not be seen in bad light.
"Antony was the only person who can point out against corruption," Chandy told a Meet-the-Press programme organised by Thiruvananthapuram Press Club as part of its 'Keralam Ini Engottu (Now Where To Kerala) - Political and Developmental debate'.
He, however, declined to comment on the remarks made by KPCC vice president V D Satheeshan that the UDF government was under the shadow of corruption.
Despite charges of corruption including bar bribery faced by his ministry, he said he was "fully satisfied" with the four-year rule of the United Democratic Front (UDF) government and it would complete its full tenure.
"The UDF government is stepping into its fifth year in office and I am fully satisfied with its four year rule," said Chandy.
Antony and state Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala at a function here last week expressed concern that corruption was on the rise in some sectors.
Corruption allegations have been levelled against Finance Minister K M Mani and Excise Minister K Babu in the bar bribery scam.
Chandy said the government's aim was to complete all the projects started by it and honour the promises made to the electorate, he said, adding, there would be no new announcements this year.
The government had received full support from the party, UDF and government employees, he said.
