Sending a clear signal to the Opposition, senior Congress leader and Union Minister of Defence A K Antony has ruled out a change of guard in the UDF government following the solar panel scandal.
“There is no political crisis in the state and no need to think of a change in the government. There is no situation which demands the resignation of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy. The style of protest by the opposition has crossed all the borders of decency”, he told reporters here on Tuesday. The Minister was returning after the funeral of his elder sister, Sister Infant Teresa who had passed away on Thursday.
Antony termed it as ‘highly deplorable’ to drag relatives of political leaders into the middle of controversies.
“When the solar allegations cropped up, the government had ordered an investigation and the investigation process is going on. Let the investigation finish. People should wait for and accept the verdicts of the court. The opposition is now unleashing violence to force the Chief Minister’s resignation. It will not be allowed”, he asserted.
