Just when you think that the solar scam probe will address all the shocking allegations that have been reported in Kerala’s local media, here comes another shocker! According to Mathrubhumi News, Saritha S Nair, who is the prime accused in the solar case, has come out with another shocking allegation. This time, Saritha S Nair has spoken out against the son of a former Union minister and senior Congress leader, alleging that their mafia business had ”used” her.
”They had used me for other things not related to the solar scam,” Saritha S Nair stated, as per Mathrubhumi news report. Speaking further, Saritha S Nair revealed that not only the former Union Minister’s son but several important persons from other states had also ”used” her as she had other investment projects besides the solar energy initiative. “Many were misusing me,” Saritha Nair stated, as per Mathrubhumi News.
Saritha Nair has also confirmed today that a complaint on this matter had already been forwarded to chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan and the Crime Branch is looking into the same.
Several leaders have reacted strongly to the LDF government’s announcement of a Vigilance probe against former chief minister Chandy and other top UDF leaders.
Reacting yesterday to the announcement, former chief minister Chandy had said that the LDF’s move would backfire and that he would fight the case legally and fearlessly. ”I have done no wrong and I am not afraid of any probe,” Chandy told media persons. While Muslim League’s PK Kunhalikutty slammed the LDF government for ‘political witch hunt’, CPM’s Kodiyeri Balakrishnan demanded that UDF leaders who had held public posts must step down and show some decency to the people. Former chief minister AK Antony called it a ‘politically motivated probe’ and a ‘cheap move’ by the Pinarayi Vijayan-led government.
”Given the current situation, the Congress party should now announce Saritha as their leader,” BJP’s Kummanam Rajasekharan mocked. On a serious note, he demanded that the named UDF leaders should relinquish all official and public posts they are holding.
