My relatives do work on several positions: E.P Jayarajan

Thiruvananthapuram: As the appointment of a relative of a top CPI-M leader as Managing Director of a state-owned public sector undertaking has raised eyebrows, Industries Minister E.P Jayarajan Thursday said relatives of his do work on several positions.

"No complaints have been received on the appointment and, if there is any, it will be looked into," said Jayarajan when asked about the appointment of his close relative.

The appointment of Sudhir Nambiar as Managing Director of Kerala State Industrial Enterprise (KSIE) has been questioned by the BJP, which has charged the government with nepotism.

Nambiar is the son of former State Minister and presently CPI-M Lok Sabha member P.K. Sreemathy and is also the nephew of State Industries Minister E.P. Jayarajan.

Young Nambiar, who has no experience of working in any senior position in any government organisation, will now replace senior IAS officer M. Beena, the present MD of KSIE.

Former State BJP president V. Muraleedharan on Thursday called for the immediate cancellation of the order appointing Nambiar as the MD of KSIE.

"This is nothing but nepotism and abuse of power. Moreover, I myself have approached the Vigilance Department with a complaint against him about his alleged deals when Sreemathy was the State Health Minister during 2006-11 and about his other business dealings," said Muraleedharan in a statement.
