AK Antony, VD Satheesan, KC Joseph
Thiruvananthapuram: Congress leadership lashed out at the CPM after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) gave a clean chit to former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in the Solar rape case. Opposition leader VD Satheesan demanded the Chief Minister to apologise for attempting to entrap 5 senior Congress leaders in a fake case.
Veteran leader AK Antony opined that there is no wonder in discarding the case as it was only a political conspiracy of the CPM.
Satheesan pointed out that the CBI had conducted all possible investigations and found no evidence against Oommen Chandy. Hence, Pinarayi Vijayan should apologise to all leaders who were listed as accused in the case and to their families, said VD Satheesan.
Senior Congress leader KC Joseph condemned that the people who accused Oommen Chandy in a fake case are now being hunted by their own party mates. The Solar case and complaints in connection with it were part of a well plotted controversy. However, truth cannot be suppressed for long. CBI’s decision in the Solar case is a lesson for everyone, said KC Joseph.
