Vaikom Viswam demands resignation of Mani, Chandy

THODUPUZHA. As the Vigilance Court ordered further probe into bar bribery case, the Left seized the opportunity to demand for the resignation of Minister K M Mani and Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.

LDF convenor Vaikom Viswan made this demand here on Thursday. “As the court is convinced that there had been attempts to sabotage the case, the ministers should resign and face the probe. LDF will resume its intense protest soon. The party will today decide on the method of protest,” he said.  

Vaikom Viswam also welcomed the court order and demanded further probe under the supervision of the court. He was speaking to media persons at ‘Nethavu Nilapadu’ programme at Idukki Press Club.  

“Even before the court gave the orders, the chief minister and the home minister had given a clean chit to Mani. Their statements were suffice to prove that the ministers were trying to torpedo the case using their influence. The Vigilance team also degraded itself by trying to windup the case. Action should also be initiated against Vigilance DGP Winson M Paul in this regard” he said.

Viswam said the Left would resume agitations demanding the resignation of Mani soon and they would not wait for the local body elections to get over. The strike action plan would be charted out before 4 pm on Thursday.
