Ramesh Chennithala resigns special invitee post in Life Mission
Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala declared that he has resigned from the post of special invitee in the Life Mission task force.
He also expressed disappointment over the primary investigation into the allegations against Life Mission under vigilance.
“My arguments over the E-mobility project were proved right. The government decision to oust PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) from the project was an example that their arguments were wrong,” he added.
“Many cases are being levelled against Life Mission. I am not interested in becoming a witness or giving statements on such issues,” he added.
Chennithala declared that he will hand over his resignation letter to the Chief Minister today.
“The Chief Minister is not responding honestly after swindling Rs 9 crore as commission from the Rs 20 crore project. For more than a month, the CM had been reiterating that the allegations are being examined. Something is wrong,” said the opposition leader.
Chennithala added that vigilance would not be able to carry out any probe into the allegations over Life Mission. “Vigilance has its limitations to probe a case with international links. Hence, the case should be handed over to the CBI,” he demanded.
