Thiruvananthapuram: In a startling revelation during the press meet convened to express his response on solar judicial commission report, former chief minister and Congress leader Oommen Chandy said he was blackmailed by a close associate.
“So many persons tried to intimidate me in connection with the case. However, I never paid them attention and told them that I would face the allegations. However, a close confidant could blackmail me and I regret it now. I will make more disclosures later,” he said.
Though media persons asked him repeatedly, Chandy declined to reveal the name.
