Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy who is facing probe in Solar scam as ordered by a vigilance court in Thrissur has said he will face the allegations legally. Mr. Chandy in Thiruvananthapuram last night told media persons that he would move a private appeal in the High Court challenging the vigilance court order.
Mr. Chandy has categorically rejected the opposition demand for his resignation, drawing his resolve from the unconditional backing he got from the Congress high command. The State Power Minister, Aryadan Muhammed who shared platform with the Chief Minister, too denied any plan to resign in the wake of the allegations levelled by accused Saritha Nair and the court directive.
Opposition Leader V.S. Achudanandan has demanded resignation of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Power Minister Aryadan. He pointed out that former Finance Minister K.M. Mani and Excise Minister K. Babu had to step down in the wake of similar situation. Other opposition party leaders have also demanded Mr. Chandy’s resignation.
As reported earlier, the vigilance court yesterday ordered the probe against Mr Chandy and Mr Aryadan on a public interest litigation filed by a social worker alleging their involvement in the Solar scam following accused Saritha Nair’s revelations before the Solar Inquiry Commission.
