THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Congress leader VD Satheeshan MLA on Monday accused Finance Minister Thomas Isaac of violating the constitution by leaking the contents of the CAG report before it was tabled in the Assembly. Before the report was tabled in the Assembly on Monday, Satheesan raised a legal issue in this regard, which led to a verbal altercation between Minister Isaac and Satheesan.

Satheesan pointed out that Thomas Isaac has violated the rights of the Assembly by leaking the contents of the CAG report that was to be tabled in the Assembly on behalf of the Governor. He also said that the minister has further violated the constitutional provisions by submitting an explanatory note in the Assembly along with the report. However, the minister said that it was the CAG that had violated the guidelines for preparing the report and had disrespected the House. He also said that he submitted the explanatory note after obtaining permission from the Governor.
