Thiruvananthapuram: Former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy has responded to the claim that Ganesh Kumar was behind the sexual assault allegation that was raised against him in the Solar case.
The senior Congress leader said that the truth will eventually be revealed and that he is not of the opinion that a new investigation should be launched in the solar case.
Oommen Chandy was not ready to respond to questions regarding whether Ganesh Kumar would plan such a conspiracy against him. Oommen Chandy stated that he does not want to respond to things he does not know about. "I have not mentioned anyone’s name in connection with the case and will not do so in the future," said Oommen Chandy.
"These allegations are natural when one forays into the field of public service. All such allegations should be tolerated," Oommen Chandy said and added that he does not want to seek revenge against anyone.
Former Kerala Congress leader Saranya Manoj had stated that there was no sexual assault allegation against Oommen Chandy in the complainant’s letter and that it was added later following the intervention of Ganesh Kumar.
Saranya Manoj said that Ganesh Kumar might have been provoked after he was not made a minister in Oommen Chandy’s cabinet for the second time.
