Thiruvananathapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala criticized the government’s move to approach the court against CBI investigation in Life Mission project. Chennithala alleged that the government has already given permission for CBI to investigate all violations of Foreign Contributions Regulation Act (FCRA). The opposition leader released the copy of the government order dated June 13, 2017, in which this decision was approved.
“It is ridiculous that the government which gave permission for CBI investigation has now approached the court against the same. It is strange that a government approached the court against its own order. In this context, the government should withdraw the case and cooperate with the investigation”, Chennithala stated.
He also added that the corruption in Life Mission project came out earlier and that is why CBI investigation is being opposed. The contract for Life Mission was prepared in the presence of the Chief Minister. Each action was taken with the approval of the Chief Minister. Chennithala alleged that government began to oppose CBI investigation after they understood that the case was moving towards the Chief Minister.
