Just forwarded Alavuddin’s job application, Minister KT Jaleel gives explanation over Swapna’s statement
Thiruvananthapuram: Minister KT Jaleel has responded to the statement given by Swapna Suresh, accused in the gold smuggling case. In her statement to Enforcement Directorate, Swapna revealed that Jaleel sought her help to arrange a job for his acquaintance Alavuddin in UAE consulate. After her statement made headlines, KT Jaleel took to his Facebook page on Tuesday and explained the fact.
In his post, he confessed that he had forwarded the biodata of Alavuddin Hudavi, who worked as personal secretary to Panakkad Syed Sadiq Ali Shihab Thangal for 9 years.
Jaleel forwarded Alavuddin’s job application to UAE consulate after he sought his help to get the job of a translator at the consulate. Alavuddin has completed MA Arabic in first rank from Mahatma Gandhi University. At present, he is doing his PhD under the University of Calicut after his MPhill.
“Alavuddin informed me that there is a vacancy of translator in UAE consulate and requested me to recommend him for the post, if he is eligible for it. As per this, I forwarded his biodata to the consulate and introduced him to them. I just wanted to help a poor man as a responsible administrator. Consulate has to select him for the post after the procedures. I did not intervene in the matter illegally. Some centres misinterpreted this fact to defame me,” said KT Jaleel.
He also pointed out that he has revealed all matters related to his links with the consulate to the investigation agencies.
