So­lar scam: Cong. flays Ker­ala govt.

The Hindu - - SOUTH - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

The Congress lead­er­ship on Thurs­day coun­tered the Ker­ala Cabi­net de­ci­sion to file crim­i­nal and Vig­i­lance cases against former Chief Min­is­ter Oom­men Chandy, his former min­is­te­rial col­leagues and a few party func­tionar­ies in the so­lar scam case by pick­ing holes in the ba­sic premise on which they were taken.

Apart from an­nounc­ing that the party and the UDF would con­front the LDF gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion po­lit­i­cally and legally, Leader of the Op­po­si­tion Ramesh Chen­nithala, at a press con­fer­ence in New Delhi, made a for­mal de­mand for a copy of the G. Si­vara­jan Com­mis­sion re­port on the so­lar scam.

Mr. Chen­nithala said the Cabi­net de­ci­sion to pur­sue the so­lar case was po­lit­i­cally mo­ti­vated and was driven by cheap po­lit­i­cal vendetta.
