THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan in a statement has said that the conspiracy hatched by K M Mani and Vigilance Director Shankar Reddy to get stay in bar bribery case and come out clean has failed after the recent high court order.
He demanded that Mani keep off the poll fray as the trial in the bar bribery case is to begin on April 18.
“Mani and Reddy have been trying to create the impression that Bar bribery case is the result of the conspiracy between S P Sueksan and Bar Owner Biju Ramesh. The high court has also questioned the credibility of the CD made to substantiate this. UDF’s henchman Shankar Reddy was even ready to forge a case against honest police officer Sukesan, using a fake CD. He would rather go on leave following the footsteps of Winson M Paul,” V S said.
