KOCHI: Coming down heavily on the G Sivarajan Judicial Commission probing the Solar scam case, for criticizing Minister Shibu Baby John the other day, UDF convener P P Thankachan said the Commission was acting with prejudice.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Thankachan alleged that Judges often crossed the limits.
“When Judges can cross their limits, why can’t peoples’ representatives do so? The UDF is not satisfied with functioning of the commission probing the Solar scam,” he said. Earlier, Labour Minister Shibu Baby John had invited the wrath of the Commission after he criticised that the Chief Minister had wasted 14 valuable hours in the name of deposing before the Commission. Later, the Minister expressed regret over his remark.
Thankachan further stated that the BJP was unable to make any impact in the State.
“They are attempting to implement their communal agenda, which will not succeed in the Kerala society that has a secular mindset. The BJP’s efforts to expand its base in the State by forging alliance with the SNDP Yogam seems to have flopped,” he added.
“The UDF will hold district-level conferences, starting February 29, and seek people’s opinion before publishing the election manifesto.
“ A meeting of various outfits has been called in Thiruvananthapuram on March 1 to seek their views. We are very confident that we would remain in power,” said Thankachan, adding that the UDF Government adopted corrective measures whenever mistakes were pointed out.
