THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Finance minister Thomas Issac responds to opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala’s criticism over Issac publicising the draft CAG report on KIIFB, even before presenting it before the assembly. Issac said that Chennithala is not making his stand clear and opposition leader has no definite answer to any relevant question.

“BJP and UDF are disappointed over the fact that their attempts to corner KIIFB has failed miserably and it is reflected even in opposition leader’s press meet. He is trying to subvert the whole issue alleging lapse of procedure over my press brief. He should tell clearly to the public the graft charges against KIIFB. He has become blind with the thirst for power. Chennithala should never become the ‘B team’ of BJP,” the minister said. He even reminded the Chennithala about the Lavlin report, in which there were notable differences between the draft report and the final ones.

“If the opposition is raising baseless things on the basis of the draft report then this government will reveal it. We will do it again. KIIFB don’t contain the stains of graft and irregularities,” the finance minister said.

In the press-meet held on Saturday, Chennithala has alleged that Thomas Issac’s move to publicise the draft CAG report even before presenting it before the assembly is a violation of existing procedures. He also said that a complaint will be filed before the speaker against the minister for leaking the report to the public on grounds of violating the rights of the assembly. On Sunday, Chennithala has also alleged that serious corruption is going on at KIIFB and finance minister is making such contemptuous political moves in order to change people’s attention from gold smuggling and drugs trade case.
