KOTTAYAM:  Mentioning about the allegations raised by Solar scam accused Saritha S Nair, before the Judicial Commission and later to the media, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said that legal action would be initiated on grounds of the allegations levelled against his son Chandy Oommen.

He was speaking at a reception meeting organised by Congress Puthuppally Assembly constituency committee at Puthuppally on Saturday.

Chandy added that it was when the opponents failed miserably in their attempts to pulled down the government that they raised allegations against his son. Chandy reiterated that he didn’t commit any mistake (in the Solar issue). “I always kept an open approach towards everybody. Anyone can meet and anyone can call me at any time. This is my strength, and might be my weakness too. Hence, it is difficult to detect if somebody misuse this (freedom). However, if I get convinced with any mistake, I will be ready to rectify it,” he said.

Chandy added that CPM, who lost its confidence and bar owners, who lost their financial source following strict stance taken by the government, joined hands and were now taking all-out offensive against the government. “They are dreaming of sabotaging the government during it final days before heading towards election. However, they won’t succeed. They cannot do anything against the government with these attempts,” he said, adding that he would have tender his resignation, if there was one per cent truth in any of their allegations.

He also pointed out that those who raised voice on the basis of the statement made by Saritha, have not implead with the Judicial Commission probing the Solar scam as well. Ministers Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, K C Joseph, Congress leaders Rajmohan Unnithan, Benny Behanan, V S Joy and others also spoke.
