New Delhi: AICC spokesperson Randeep Surjewala Thursday said there was no need for Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to resign over the bar bribery allegations against him.
“There is no need for Chandy to resign over the bar bribery allegations against him. He has already denied the charges against him,” Randeep Surjewala told reporters.
“Chandy had said in the floor of the Assembly that let a probe be ordered into the allegations. A judicial commission has been appointed to probe the matter. Whatever may the judicial commission’s probe report, we are ready to accept that,” he said.
When asked about the latest developments signaling Chandy’s resignation, the AICC spokesperson said Chandy himself made it clear that he was going to discuss the matter with the party leaders and the UDF coalition partners.
“A detailed report will be submitted to the Congress central leadership in this regard,” he said.
“Not a rupee of benefit was given by the Congress party government in Kerala to any member of so called team solar,” said Randeep.
“It is election time in Kerala, mischievous and malicious allegations will continue to fly,” he said.
