At the Cabinet briefing, when the Chief Minister was asked about what he proposed to do about the Kannur DCC member's public statement that the Forest Minister had abducted his sister, the Chief Minister initially said that nobody had complained to him about the matter, but later said he was in receipt of a fax message about it.
The Forest Minister, he said, had denied the charge and told him that nothing of the kind had happened. The Minister had volunteered to offer the explanation and also told him that he proposed to take steps in the matter. "Let me think what action should be taken now,'' Mr. Antony added.
Referring to the newspaper report that the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests was going around in a luxury car allegedly belonging to sandalwood smugglers, the Chief Minister said the Government had not received any complaint in the matter. "Now that you have raised it here, I will inquire into it,'' he said and directed his officials to make the newspaper reports available to him immediately.
