NSS and SNDP turn against govt

KOTTAYAM/KOLLAM: The NSS and the SNDP harshly criticised the UDF government headed by Ommen Chandy. NSS general secretary G Sukumaran Nair said that if the present situation continues, the UDF will not be able to complete its term. The government is more interested in appeasing the Muslims. The education minister and the chief minister insulted NSS general secretary, said Nair.

SNDP Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan said the Muslim League has hijacked the administration of the government. Vellappally sarcastically said that if the League demands a state as its centre in Malappuram, the government will surely provide it. 

Pinarayi demands probe against Congress MP

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPI (M) state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan Saturday asked the government to register a case and begin an enquiry against Congress Lok Sabha member K Sudhakaran, following new revelation made in a shooting case.
Sudhakaran is a former state minister and is presently the Lok Sabha member from Kannur.

Addressing reporters here, Pinarayi said the new revelations have come from a former aide (Prasanth Babu) of Sudhakaran who was also his driver.

"He has revealed that the shooting of the then Kannur CPI-M district secretary E P Jayarajan was done after a conspiracy hatched by Sudhakaran at his residence in Kannur," said Pinarayi.

Pinarayi also said that Babu has revealed that Sudhakaran was behind two other attacks in Kannur in which one person was killed and another seriously injured.

Jayarajan, currently a CPI-M legislator from Kannur, was shot at on board the Rajdhani Express at Chirala in Andhra Pradesh on April 12, 1995 while traveling from New Delhi to Kannur.

"In the light of the new revelation, the home ministry here should give direction to the police to register a case against Sudhakaran," added Pinarayi.

"Babu has said that even though a case was registered against the people who actually did the shooting, Sudhakaran got away after the Congress government here influenced politicians in Andhra Pradesh and his name was not there in the list of accused," added Pinarayi.

Reacting to the developments, Jayarajan said that it was known that he was shot by a group of people selected to do the job.
"Now that the name of Sudhakaran has come out, the police should find out the truth," said Jayarajan.

Sudhakaran told reporters that Babu was never a close aide as mentioned but was his driver for just a month.

"I will cooperate with any enquiry and I welcome a probe into the new revelations. But it must be known that Babu, today is unemployed and has lost his job in a bank which is governed by CPI-M members and it is least surprising that since he wants his job, he has to please the CPI-M," said Sudhakaran.

Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan told reporters that the government had a policy to look into the matter if there was any truth in the new revelations.

"The high court the other day upheld a case that we registered based on a new revelation and hence we will enquire into this revelation also," said Radhakrishnan.

Director General of Police Jacob Punnoose said that the police have a standard procedure wherein first, they will find out from the person who made the revelation and depending on the veracity of the information, they will decide to go ahead or not.

VS attacks Pinarayi

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Let us see whether the people of the state will believe what CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan said in connection with the murder of T P Chandrasekharan, said opposition leader V S Achuthanandan.

He said this while responding to Pinarayi’s reiterated statement that the party has no role in the murder case of TP. The arrest of P Mohanan in a filmy style was not correct, he added. 

K Sudhakaran’s ex-driver comes out with startling revelations

Saturday, June 30, 2012: Congress local leader has come out in open against Congress leader K Sudhakaran. Prashanth Babu, Congress block secretary and Sudhakaran’s car driver for over 4 years, had revealed that Congress leader K Sudhakaran had conspired to kill CPM leader E P Jayarajan.

Prashanth Babu said the conspiracy to kill E P Jayarajan was hatched at Sudhakaran’s Nadallil house. Sudhakaran is also involved in the attack that took place in Kannur Savery hotel and at the co-operative press. The attack was carried out with the help of quotation gang. Sudhakaran had infact aligned with the police to save the real accused. He was using party activists as scapegoat instead of real goondas.

Meanwhile, politburo member Kodiyeri Balakrishnan wanted a case to be booked against Sudhakaran and hold a probe in connection with Prashanth’s statement.

CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan too demanded probe against K Sudhakaran on the basis of recent revelations by his former driver Prashanth Babu. The revelations are very serious and the home ministry must be ready to take action and give protection to Prashanth Babu, he said. Congress national leadership and KPCC must react on this, Pinarayi said.

Bishop Kuriakose Mar Clemis goes ‘missing’

Four days after he was removed from official services, Metropolitan Kuriakose Mar Clemis of the Jacobite Church has reportedly gone missing. According to the Jacobite Syrian Christian Church, Mar Clemis has left the place where he was staying.

“It is learnt that he has left the Thoothooty Retreat Centre in Kottayam where he was provided accommodation, following the disciplinary action. We do not know about his current whereabouts and have lodged a complaint with the police,” said a senior metropolitan, who is a member of the committee looking into the allegations.

“Mar Clemis is not cooperating with the committee constituted to look into the allegations raised by him. He has been asked to appear before the committee on July 4. But now we do not expect his presence,” he said.

Meanwhile, sources in the Jacobite church said that the real estate deals had trapped Mar Clemis. “He had given advances for real estate deals at various places in Idukki, including the land for the proposed headquarters of the Idukki diocese. `5 crore was given as advance for this purpose and he had landed in trouble when the registration process was delayed. What we could primarily understand is that he conceded to the pressure by somebody,” sources said.

However, according to the committee, the financial liabilities of Mar Clemis was not owing to the real estate agreements alone. “It is true that he had initiated some real estate deals, but the liabilities are not because of land deals alone,” the metropolitan said.

Meritorious students edged out of engineering rank list

Close on the heels of the High Court  directing the government and All India Council for Technical Education to close down self-financing engineering colleges leaving many aspirants in panic, another problem confronts them.

The government has flouted the norm of considering 50 per cent of entrance examination marks and 50 per cent of board examination marks while charting the ranklist, depriving admission to many meritorious students to the merit seats.

The entrance exam directorate has fixed the total marks at 600 (300 set apart for entrance exam and 300 for board exam). Ideally, the marks should have been fixed at 630, that is, 480 marks for the entrance examination (50 per cent of the maximum score 960) plus 150 marks for board exams( 50 per cent of maximum score 300). The brilliant students may join IITs or similar institutes, they said.The parents said that conversion would mean only one third of the entrance exam marks are being taken into account and not 50 per cent as stipulated in the norms and therefore requested the government to rectify the ranklist.The Commissioner of Entrance Examination said that calculation has been done by experts. “The 960 marks have been converted into 300 based on the mathematical principles which only the mathematical experts know,” said B Mavoji, Commissioner of Entrance Examination.  The formula followed by the authorities is highly beneficial to the state board students as compared to their peers, alleged the parents of CBSE students. “My daughter’s rank for the state engineering entrance is above 6000. One of her friends scored 391 marks for the entrance exam and 78 per cent for the board exam and her rank is above 11,000. CBSE students who appeared for the AIEEE obtained ranks within the 2,500-3,500 range,” said Dr Dhanesh.

Shwetha Menon gives a nod to Blessy to film her maternity period, delivery

Shweta Menon has given a nod to film maker Blessy to make a film highlighting on her various stages of pregnancy.
Shweta Menon and her husband Sreevalsan Menon has said yes to director Blessy to shoot her maternity period as well as her child birth for his upcoming movie.
