Gold smuggling case: UDF launches agitation demanding CM's resignation

Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala stated that the NIA investigation has reached the secretariat and will reach the office of chief minister very soon.

The Congress leader also demanded that the chief minister who cannot handle his own office should resign.

"The principal secretary who served the chief minister for so long helped the gold smugglers. If the person who rule the state cannot handle his office, he should resign", Ramesh demanded.

Meanwhile, Congress leader K. Muraleedharan MP said that there is 'alliance' between CPI(M) and BJP in the state.

"Bijulal, Senior accountant of Vanchiyoor sub-treasury who was suspended for financial irregularity, has CPI(M) relations", Muraleedharan alleged.

He also stated that state government failed in containing the spread of COVID-19.

Former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy has rallied behind Ramesh Chennithala over CPI(M)' ‘RSS’ comment.

"CPI(M)’s smear campaign against Ramesh is understandable as he is the one who exposed the ruling party’s Sprinklr, Bevco app and e-mobility scams", said Chandy.

He reminded CPI(M) that Congress was the only political party to have taken a strong stand against the RSS. Asianet Online
