Decision On Thomas Chandy At Appropriate Time: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan

Decision On Thomas Chandy At Appropriate Time: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan

Dismissing Thomas Chandy's writ petition challenging the government over a land grab scam, the Kerala High Court today said it's better that the state's Transport Minister steps down from his post.

The high court had cancelled Chandy's petition, stating that a minister won't be able to approach the court against the government for personal needs.

Mr. Vijayan has received flak for his alleged kid-glove treatment of Chandy despite Alappuzha district collector submitting a report to the government confirming that the minister illegally reclaimed revenue land to construct an approach road and a parking lot for the resort owned by him.

"It's a classic case for disqualification". "It shows that you have no trust in your own government and chief minister", the bench said, observing that it was "extremely improper" for a minister to file a petition against his own government.

Chandy must fight this issue legally as a common citizen: Kerala High Court. Chandy on Tuesday evening canceled his plan to go to New Delhi for a meeting with the national leadership of the NCP. But Chandy, the richest cabinet member and the sole NCP minister, remains in place.

On the minister's contentions against the findings of the collector's report, the court pointed out that he should have taken up his grievances with the district collector itself instead of knocking on the doors of the high court.

He remorsefully looked back at the customers waiting behind him in line, and began to unload fistfuls of change from his pockets. MS resident Spring Bowlin was waiting in the checkout line at her local Walmart when she said her "heart was warmed".

Citing procedure, State president T.P. Peethambaran said the ball was in the party parliamentary board's court. It is better for Chandy to quit, said senior communist leader and public works minister G. Sudhakaran.

The opposition Congress-led UDF and the BJP have been demanding the resignation of Chandy over allegations of land encroachment.

Chandy belongs to the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), which is a constituent of the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) government in Kerala.

The LDF entrusted chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Sunday to take a decision.

There are reports that Chandy may move the Supreme Court against the HC judgement.
