Cong sees ulterior motive in charges linking UDF to Sreevalsam

Press Trust of India  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

Senior leader Ramesh Chennithala today alleged an ulterior motive behind the charge that the party-led has links to a private company under the scanner and sought a probe to unearth the truth.

In a letter to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, he said a probe should be ordered to unearth the truth behind the allegation that a former minister and has a connection with the company from which the IT department had reportedly recovered following raids recently.

Allegation from certain quarters linking the Congress-led United Democratic Front in this regard had raised doubts and an investigation either by a or a state agency was needed to clear the same, Chennithala, Leader of the Opposition in the state assembly, said.

Alappuzha District Secretary T J Anjalous had alleged that the a former UDF minister was having links with the Sreevalsm Group whose premises were raided last week.

Chennithala said the allegation had been made with an ulterior motive. "The charge has been made to tarnish the image of UDF," he said.

The allegation that the group had connection with proposed Haripad Medical College was also baseless, he said.

The college in Alappuzha district was mooted by Chennithala when he was the Minister in previous UDF rule.
