Mr Oommen Chandy…..did Pillai call you?

ratnakaranThiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Oommen Chandy remained mum even after the Opposition leader VS Achuthananthan and Mulakkara Rathnakaran repeatedly asked the ruling party to make their stand clear regarding Pillai’s telephone conversation with the media. After walking out of the legislative assembly C Diwakaran told reporters, “Mr Achuthanandan and Rathnakaran asked Mr Oommen Chandy whether Balakrishnan Pillai had called him and spoken to him earlier on the phone. But they never answered the questions.”

The opposition who were dissatisfied with the UDF silence has started a sit in protest and the speaker was forced to adjourn the assembly for the day. “Sit in protest is undemocratic,” said speaker G Karthikeyan. Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said that the investigation was under way and there was no need to make the issue into a state level controversy.
