Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan on Saturday said that Chief Minister Oommen Chandy also had a role in the alleged land grab at Kadakampally in Thiruvananthapuram district.

Speaking to mediapersons after visiting the victims of the land grab at Kadakampally, he said Chief Minister Oommen Chandy also had played a role in the land grab in which the Chief Minister’s former gunman Salimraj is facing charges of committing fraud against  landowners.

He pointed out that Salimraj claimed ownership of the land of those people who had been residing in the Kadakampally village for the last forty years, by   tampering with the ‘Thandapper’ of the land.

The complainants came to meet VS with the receipts of the land tax they had paid up to 2012. The Opposition leader listened to the complaints of those who had come to meet him.

He exhorted the public to stand united with the people of Kadakampally in their fight against injustice.

“Salimraj is said to have assets worth Rs 250 crore. He is one of the three sons of a father. All the three sons are in police service. But how can Salimraj own such  huge assets?’’ he asked.

 The High Court had asked about the source of Salimraj’s income and directed the Vigilance to file a report on the assets and his income sources within 10 days.

VS’s visit is part of the LDF’s move to strengthen the agitation on the land grab issue.

On Sunday, Opposition Deputy leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan will visit Kadakampally and hold a meeting of the land grab victims.
