KPCC: Karat must intervene for probe

Special Correspondent



M.M. Hassan has listed seven charges against the Chief Minister's son.

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) has asked Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Prakash Karat to direct Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan to order a probe into all allegations levelled against his son, V.A. Arun Kumar.

KPCC media spokesperson M.M. Hassan shot off a letter to Mr. Karat pointing out seven allegations against the Chief Minister's son. “ The Chief Minister has rejected all requests for an inquiry though the UDF was ready to hand over evidence.”

The allegations include accepting bribe from sandalwood mafia, forging papers to register for Ph.D., and the slew of promotions Mr. Arun Kumar got.

He said the alleged attempts of Mr. Achuthanandan to scuttle a bid to order a CBI inquiry against the online lottery mafia was because Mr. Arun Kumar's wife was a director for one year in a firm which engaged in online lottery.

Helpline

He said the KPCC had opened a helpline on its website for Indians stranded in Libya.

The helpline would coordinate its actions with the Ministries of External Affairs and the Overseas Indian Affairs to help out families seeking to locate their kin stranded in Libya, he said.

Vishnunath's claim

Special Correspondent writes from Thrissur: P.C. Vishnunath, MLA, has said that he will furnish details of irregularities in the appointment of V.A. Arun Kumar, son of Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan, as additional director of the Institute of Human Resources Development. At a press meet on Saturday, Mr. Vishnunath said Mr. Achuthanandan should state whether he would take action if ample evidence was produced. “Changes were made in the notification for appointing Mr. Arun Kumar. The executive committee and governing body of the IHRD had decided to amend the existing qualifications of additional director to enable officers of the feeder category to apply for the post. Attempts were made to aid the appointment of Mr. Arun Kumar,” he said.
