Move to sabotage case against Biju Ramesh: KC (M)

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Congress (Mani) has lodged a complaint to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy citing that as part of Operation Anantha- a scheme started to avoid waterlogging in the capital city, a complacency is shown in connection with the demolition of a complex of Rajadhani Hotel owned by Biju Ramesh, bar hotel association working president. The complaint said an attempt from political and official levels is on to subvert the case against Biju.

The district administration had on August 22 ordered to demolish the Rajadhani Buildings. The order said the Thekkanamkara Canal was constructed after encroaching it and as per disaster management act of 2005, it should be demolished. However, Biju Ramesh moved the court against it and got a stay. The complaint asserted that the government is not taking any steps even after the period for filing the plea is coming to a close. The Kerala Congress has raised the fear that the revenue department is trying to cover the file till the duration of the plea ends.

Minister K Babu had complained to the chief minister that some in the cabinet are helping Biju Ramesh for putting the government under pressure in the bar case. The Kerala Congress has now expressed the same reaction. The chief secretary had sought a report to the ADM ahead of filing of appeal. The report was handed over to advocate general in a week. However, the report was sent to revenue department for more details to file the appeal but even after a month the section has not given it even after a month. Due to this, the delay occurred in filing the plea.
