Justice G Sivarajan submits final report to Kerala CM

Justice G Sivarajan submits final report to Kerala CM”

Neither the commission nor the chief minister has divulged the details of the four-volume report.

The report into a multi-crore solar energy investment fraud, which rocked the Oommen Chandy government in 2013, was submitted to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday.

The Kochi-based commission's tenure was to expire tomorrow.

Responding to enquiries by reporters, Justice Sivarajan said that the Chief Minister would talk about the report, and that he'd comment on it at a later time. Former chief minister Oommen Chandy, whose office was caught in the centre of the controversy, said his government had brought his office also under the purview of the probe as it had nothing to hide. "The commission has now submitted its report; let the contents come out".

"My office was open to all where anyone could drop in to meet me", the former chief minister said.

The complaint is that Saritha S Nair and Biju Radhakrishnan formed a company called "Team Solar" and swindled off the money of a lot of people in its name.

The scam came into the limelight after telephone conversations between staff of Chandy and prime accused Saritha Nair came up before the media.

Incidentally, the Commission was appointed by the Chandy government in October 2013 to probe the scam after the then Left opposition led a massive onslaught both inside and outside the assembly, forcing Chandy to announce a judicial probe.

Justice Sivarajan said the commission had covered all areas included in its terms of reference.

Chandy had maintained that the charges against him and his office were "politically motivated" and had denied any wrongdoing.

The scam was a major election plank of the CPI (M)-led LDF which rode to power in May 2016.
