Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala approached vigilance court demanding a probe into the allegations in connection with the brewery and distillery licence allowed by the state government. The court will consider the case on January 10.
Chennithala has approached the court demanding to charge a case according to criminal law against chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan and excise minister T. P. Ramakrishnan.
It has been pointed out in the plea that the amendment made to the section 17 of the Prevention of Corruption Act was not considered while granting the licence.
Chennithala told the media that he approached the court because the Governor did not pay heed to his allegation regarding the corruption.
He added that the legal battle will be continued till the corrupted persons are brought before the law.
