Solar scam: Cong. flays Kerala govt.
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.
