THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a major blow to the government just a few months ahead of the assembly elections, bar hotel association working president Biju Ramesh has come forward with yet another allegation.
In an interview to a private channel, he alleged that an amount of Rs 2 crore was offered to Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala. The money was given to him while Chennithala was serving as the KPCC chief. Rs 25 lakh was given to Minister V S Sivakumar before the Neyyattinkara bypolls. Meantime, there is no receipt or proofs to prove it, he said.
The money was taken to the office of the KPCC president. The money was not given for any favour done but was given so that no problems occur later, he said.
Meantime, Minister V S Sivakumar denied the allegation. Neither me nor my colleagues have accepted the money, he said.
