With Union Minister of State for Home Mullappally Ramachandran taking umbrage of the statement made by Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan in the Assembly on Tuesday mentioning his name in connection with the T P Chandrasekharan murder case, the latter has come out with an explanation pointing out he was only banking on a statement of the Union Minister.

Mullappally Ramachandran has written to Speaker G Karthikeyan to expunge the remarks of the state Home Minister.

He has also announced plans for approaching the Lok Sabha Speaker with a complaint on the remarks passed by Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, citing that it was made against a person who was not present in the House.

Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan clarified that he had only banked on a statement of the Union Minister in the TP murder case that only small fishes were netted and big

sharks are still roaming free, while responding to a query of Opposition deputy leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan whether Mullappally Ramachandran had mentioned the names to be included in the list of  accused in the case.

‘’I’ve never mentioned that Mullappally Ramachandran had given a list of those to be included in the list’’,he said.’’ I’ve also asked whether it is not for the investigation team to trace the accused,’’ he said.

The Home Minister said that he was maintaining a consistent stand that no external influence should be exerted upon a probe team. ‘’Now the CPM is trying to twist the issue,’’ he blamed. ‘’I’ll send a letter clarifying all these points’’,the minister said. 

On the disclosures of the Union Minister that a section of the police in the state is working to overthrow the UDF government, Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan said that such information, if any, should be handed over to the state.

Interestingly, Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, even when being a votary of the ‘A’ faction, is facing rough weather from a person within his group again, after receiving strong criticism cutting across group affiliations in the state Congress unit for messing up the solar scam probe.
