Thiruvananthapuram: BJP reiterated that Minister K.T Jaleel violated protocol in connection with the sensational gold smuggling case.
Jaleel allegedly received kits for distribution from the UAE consulate during Ramzan and also a copy of the Holy Quran, both of which are a violation of protocol.
BJP state president K. Surendran alleged that in the pretext of Qurans, it was gold bars that came to Minister Jaleel’s department and the Minister has been silent for the last ten days.
"The Chief Minister and other ministers cannot escape from gold smuggling case. The Chief Minister’s statement that he is not aware of anything will not work longer. It was not the Ramadan kit that came to Jaleel’s department, but the gold nuggets", Surendran said.
