The Opposition Left Democratic Front (LDF) on Sunday expressed its strong reservations over “the calculated efforts of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to scuttle” his own promise to have the solar scam probed by a sitting judge of the High Court of Kerala.

The LDF State committee met here and passed a resolution condemning the “non-serious way” the State government had gone about executing its assurance to the Opposition in the matter of the solar scam.

Briefing presspersons about the outcome of the meeting, LDF convener Vaikom Viswan said the Opposition had withdrawn its siege of the Secretariat following the government’s announcement that the solar scam would be subjected to an investigation by one of the sitting judges of the High Court.

All that the government did to execute the commitment was to ask the Chief Secretary to write to the Chief Justice in a “non-serious way” seeking the services of a judge for the probe.

The high level network, “with the Chief Minister’s office as its fulcrum,” to deceive many people of large sums of money in the name of a solar power company, had fully come into light in Kerala, he alleged, but this aspect of the case had not been submitted with sufficient force and focus in the Chief Secretary’s letter.

“It would be proper if the Chief Minister himself could talk to the Chief Justice [to impress her about the unavoidable need for the services of a sitting judge for the probe],” Mr. Viswan said.
