Thiruvananthapuram: Hotelier Biju Ramesh has fired another salvo, this time at the Left Democratic Front (LDF).
In a leaked audio clip of Biju Ramesh’s speech at a meeting of the bar owners, the hotelier is heard saying that the LDF had assured to help them open the closed bars in the state.
The CPI-M leadership, including general secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, assured to open 418 closed bars once the LDF came to power in the state.
Biju has also claimed investigation officer S P Sugesan asked him to name four UDF ministers in the bar bribery case.
The fresh allegations have put the Opposition in a tight spot as it has been demanding the resignation of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and other ministers over bribery allegations.
