KOTTAYAM:CPM Kottayam district secretary V N Vasavan has challenged Sports Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan to make the accounts of the recently concluded National Games 2015 public in the wake of corruption allegations behind its conduct.
He was speaking after inaugurating a protest march took out by the district unit of the LDF to the residence of the minister seeking his resignation here on Thursday.
Vasavan alleged that Thiruvanchoor, who was open to conducting a social auditing after the conclusion of the Games has gone back on his earlier stance. “Since National Games 2015, which was conducted at a cost of around ` 611 crore, is facing a corruption allegations to the tune of more than ` 200 crore, Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan did not have the courage to disclose its accounts.
