ALAPPUZHA: There is a political conspiracy behind the editing of the disc produced by hotelier Biju Ramesh in the bar bribery case, said CPM politburo member Pinarayi Vijayan. There may be some political interest for Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and his aides. Addressing the media as part of his Nava Kerala March, he asked whether it was right for a police official to join them.
Appointing an ADGP as vigilance director was to sabotage the case. The audio clippings of Biju were edited in favour of the government. ADGP Shankar Reddy exposed the audio clips to defame the CPM, he said.
Pinarayi said the UDF Government has the culture of the mafias and destroying evidence is their style. The phone dialogues of KPCC general secretary Thampanoor Ravi shows the relation between Saritha S Nair and the congress. Oommen Chandy is a chief minister who has close links with the criminals.
When asked about the liquor policy, he said things are not decided by one or two persons of the CPM.
