THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan on Tuesday called upon the people not to allow Finance Minister K M Mani, who is accused of accepting bribe in the bar scam, to present the state budget.

 Inaugurating the LDF march taken out to the Secretariat seeking the resignation of Mani, he said that Mani and the UDF Government were  trying to create new record in corruption like the athletes improving their records. The bar bribery was the latest in it.

 Achuthanandan said Mani should not be allowed to present the budget as he had been minting money by selling the budget. He said all progressive minded people should come forward to support the LDF agitation seeking Mani’s resignation.

 The Opposition Leader also demanded that Chief Minister Oommen Chandy should also resign in the wake of the Judicial Commission  probing the Solar scam fraud case deciding to question him also in the case.

 LDF convener Vaikom Viswan, CPM district secretary Kadakampally Surendran, V Sivankutty MLA, CPI assistant secretary K Prakash Babu, and other coalition partners spoke on the occasion. LDF workers also took out marches to taluk headquarters across the state.
