Chief Minister Oommen Chandy had many visitors on Monday, including Governor Nikhil Kumar, Speaker G Karthikeyan, Union Ministers Kodikkunnil Suresh and Shashi Tharoor, Ministers Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, V S Sivakumar, K P Mohanan, K C Joseph, Shibu Baby John, Deputy Speaker N Sakthan and KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala. Health Minister V S Sivakumar, after visiting Chandy, said that the health condition of the Chief Minister was stable. He said that the CM was subjected to a CT scan owing to the injury he has on his forehead.

A team of doctors led by head of General Medicine Dr D Dallas reviewed the condition of the CM. Medical College Hospital superintendent Dr Mohandas said that the scanning report showed that the injury on his forehead had affected only the soft tissues and was not serious.

 “Splinters from the window glasses of his vehicle, which caused injuries in his chest, were removed from the wound. He has been advised complete rest to prevent infection. ECG and blood test were conducted last night. He will be under observation for 24 hours,’’ he said.  The CM has canceled all his official programmes for three days and the mass contact programme scheduled to be held in Kollam on Tuesday has been postponed to December 12. The tirade of charges against the LDF continued on Monday with most of the Congress leaders who visited the CM condemning the attack and accusing the Left of  orchestrating the attack.

Congress state vice-president M M Hassan, after visiting the CM, said that it was evident that the CPM was behind the attack. “Never before has a Chief Minister in Kerala been attacked. Even Opposition leader   Achuthanandan has condemned it,’’ he said.
