THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan has demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Minister Aryadan Muhammed in the wake of the Vigilance court ordering registering of the FIR against them.
VS asked the chief minister to resign as soon as possible without clinging on to the power. Minister Aryadan who also had his share of the bribe should also resign. He made this demand during a press conference here on Thursday.
“If they are not ready to relinquish their posts, Kerala will witness strong agitations,” he warned. “Former ministers K Mani and K Babu had to resign after the court ordered filing of FIR against them. Now Chandy and Aryadan are facing the same situation. In the Solar case, the chief minister is the main accused and Aryadan is the co-accused. Hence both should not give lame excuses but resign as ministers. The case was that Saritha had cheated people of crores of money. Now it has turned out that the chief minister has cheated Saritha of a few crores,” he said.
VS ridiculed that like a big pickpocket pickpocketing a small pickpocket, Chandy has defrauded Saritha.
