Thiruvananthapuram: Amid the allegations regarding the intervention to settle a sexual harassment complaint against an NCP leader, Minister A K Saseendran visited Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan at Cliff House here on Wednesday.

After the meeting, Saseendran told the media that he has explained everything to the chief minister. He added that it is the CM who should clarify if he is satisfied with the explanation. The minister also said that he has no plans to resign.

Saseendran said that he visited the chief minister to inform the matters to him and he was not summoned by the CM. Apart from the allegations related to the intervention in sexual harassment case, some matters regarding the forest department also were discussed, he said.

A K Saseendran informed the chief minister he intervened in the case unaware that it was a sexual harassment complaint and he thought it was only an issue between two party leaders.

The minister had given an explanation to the chief minister over phone the other day. The chief minister also is unhappy over the allegations raised against a minister in his cabinet as the government gives key importance to safety of women.

An alleged voice recording was leaked in which the minister can be heard asking the complainant woman's father over the phone to settle the case in a fair manner.

The alleged intervention came in settling a sexual harassment complaint filed against an NCP leader in Kollam district of Kerala.
