Will quit if observation against me in HC signed verdict: Thomas Chandy

Facebook  Mission IAS 2017

A division bench of the high court, comprising justices P N Raveendran and Devan Ramachandran held that a minister can not file a petition against his own government, which had ordered the district collector to look into the matter and submit a report.

The high court had cancelled Chandy's petition, stating that a minister won't be able to approach the court against the government for personal needs.

"We stand behind Chandy, but the final decision rests with the Chief Minister", said Peethamabaran.

"It's a classic case for disqualification".

Already under fire from coalition partners for bending over backwards to protect Mr. Chandy and causing severe embarrassment to the government, the NCP State executive, which met here briefly on Tuesday, has now shifted to damage control to ensure no further discomfiture to the government, as a leader put it.

He may file a petition in the court, seeking to cancel the high court order. It is based on the principle of collective responsibility that the entire cabinet resigns even if a no-confidence motion is passed against a single minister, it pointed out.

The FDA's chief, Scott Gottleib, asked Congress for more power and expanded resources to combat the opioid epidemic on Tuesday. Dozens of web sites sell kratom , but the FDA said it would exercise its jurisdiction over the product as an unapproved drug.

In Kochi, the NCP state executive discussed the matter and chose to inform the national leadership about its decision on the matter.

Through the judgment, Chandy has lost all hope of continuing as a Minister.

Chandy is the Nationalist Congress Party nominee in the LDF ministry. Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala said the verdict leaves no option for Chandy but to quit. "We can not disclose our decision to media", he told reporters.

Amidst mounting pressure for the resignation of Transport Minister Thomas Chandy, the ruling CPI (M) today made it clear that the party would not make any compromise in dealing with those who violate the law. "Appropriate decision will be taken at the right time", he said.

Mr. Chandy left for Thiruvananthapuram later in the evening after being summoned by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan ahead of Wednesday's Cabinet meeting. While E.P. Jayarajan, minister for industries and sports, had to leave after facing charges of nepotism previous year, A.K. Saseendran, minister for transport, quit following allegations of sexual misconduct in April.
