Thiruvananthapuram: Municipal corporation parliamentary party secretary DR Anil said on Monday that he wrote the controversial letter regarding the appointments to the SIT hospital, to CPM district secretary.

“As the parliamentary party secretary, I wrote the letter to bring the matter to the party secretary’s attention and to know if he would provide any help. But as soon as I wrote the letter, I felt it was not right and did not send it,” he told media persons.

Asked if it validated the allegations of backdoor appointments, he said the hiring process was being followed. “An advertisement is given in the newspaper, and a panel conducts the interviews,” he said. Anil added that he wrote the letter thinking he could help out the Kudumbasree.
