Government Chief Whip P C George on Sunday said that the statement of Saritha S Nair, the second accused in the solar scandal, could not be trusted as she served jail term in a cheating case.

Speaking to mediapersons here, he said that sharing a stage with her in public functions by people’s representatives cannot be considered as an offence. He, however, said that those, who have committed mistakes should be punished.

He also accused the LDF and UDF Governments for letting down fraudsters Biju Radhakrishnan and Saritha S Nair, even while they have charged with various cases from 2003 onwards. “Both V S Achuthanandan and Oommen Chandy should take the responsibility for not taking any action against the duo. It is a serious lapse from the part of Intelligence and Police Departments,” he said.
