Kasargod: CPI(M) politburo member Pinarayi Vijayan Thursday said he was surprised at Chief Minister Oommen Chandy’s remark that he came to know about the government’s plan to move the High Court seeking an early hearing of the revision petitions in Lavalin case.
“I’m surprised at CM’s statement. He is targeting someone else from his own party,” Pinarayi told reporters in Kasargod.
On Wednesday, Chief MinisterOommen Chandy said the law would take its own course in the SNC Lavalin case and the Kerala government would not interfere in it.
"We do not interfere in such things and the law will take its course. Am I also not facing the palm oil case that has been dragging on for close to three decades?" said Chandy.
Chandy said the media in 2006 had written "hum sab chor hai", accusing both the opposition and the ruling party of playing a game, when the vigilance department had given a clean chit to Vijayan in the Lavalin case.
"That was how we decided then to hand this case over to the CBI," Chandy said.
