v-d-satheesan-

THIRUVANANTHPAURAM: Opposition leader V D Satheesan challenged Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to mention at least one administrative achievement. There has been no such bad government in history, criticized the leader. The criticism was about the debt of the electricity board. He was speaking while inaugurating the secretariat blockade of the UDF.

‘There was no items in the Maveli Store during this Onam. A liability of thousands of crores for civil supplies. You know the situation of the electricity board? The electricity board was profitable during the time of Oommen Chandy Government. The customers were given a discount of 20 paise per unit then. Employees were given benefits when it was profitable. Debts up to that time were settled. Do you know how much is the electricity debt from 1957 to 2016? Rs 1083 crores. Do you know how much is the debt of the electricity board for these seven years from 2016 to 2023? Rs forty thousand crore,' said Satheesan.

Meantime, normal life was crippled in the secretariat siege. There was traffic jam at Thampanoor, Palayam and Bakery junction. The UDF workers blocked all the gates to the secretariat except the cantonment gate. All the important leaders of UDF had reached here. Meanwhile, the police stopped M C Dutt, chief minister's scientific advisor. He was stopped near Annex II as the police did not identify him. When the media workers asked him about the issue, he said 'Aren't you ashamed, why don’t you all go and beg?
