THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, 16 JUNE: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, facing heat over the links of his office staff with a woman arrested in a cheating case, got a further jolt with leader of opposition VS Achuthanandan demanding that he step down and order a judicial probe. "His government has turned into a company that supports frauds, cheats and womanisers. Has there been a chief minister in Kerala like Chandy?”
“He has to order a judicial probe and quit office. We are going to raise this again and again in the Assembly," Achuth-anandan told reporters today.
The woman, Saritha S Nair and her former live-in partner had managed to collect crores of rupees for erecting solar panels at offices and homes. It later came to light that she had maintained close links with Chandy&’s office. ians
