LDF govt linked with gold, dollar smuggling and deporting, criticizes Ramesh Chennithala
Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala stated that only gold and dollar smuggling and deporting takes place under the LDF government these days.
The Chief Minister's principal secretary, minister and Swapna Suresh are at the forefront of these acts. But the CM keeps sermoning in his usual press meets, the Congress leader added.
The Chief Minister repeated that the investigation is progressing in the right direction. So, the statements released by the probe agencies should be trusted. Ministers K T Jaleel, Kadakampally Surendran, MLA Karat Razak, LDF municipal councillor Karat Faisal and most of the people involved in the gold smuggling case belong to LDF, Chennithala alleged.
The WhatsApp messages exchanged by Sivasankar and chartered accountant is proof for how the Chief Minister's office is used for gold smuggling and hawala deals. The CM is trying to hide the facts as more evidence comes to light every day. No other government in Kerala was involved in such demeaning deals ever, the opposition leader added.
The smugglers are linked with not only the CM, but other top leaders of CPM too. Gold smuggling accused Sandeep Nair's wife Soumya stated that Sandeep and Ramees smuggled gold for the Koduvally team. It is the CPM, which is more attached to this Koduvally team, he pointed out.
CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan used their car for his Kerala Yatra. He then claimed that he boarded the car to be safe from the crowd. But is a political leader supposed to board a Cooper owned by smugglers? If Kodiyeri Balakrishnan escaped from the public by getting into a smuggler's car, then he cannot save face from the public, Chennithala said.
