Court rejects Kerala CM Chandy's plea against VS

13-May-2016 / 4:17 pm
Kerala Updates: Thiruvananthapuram: The Thiruvananthapuram additional district court has rejected Kerala chief minister Oommen Chandy's defamation suit against opposition leader VS Achuthanandan. In his petition, the CM had said that VS was raising false allegations against him, thereby maligning his image. The opposition leader had said that Chandy was an accused in 33 cases. However, earlier on Friday Achuthanandan made a U­turn stating that he never said that an FIR was registered against the CM. "Chandy's lawyer is accusing VS of making statements that he never said," opposition leader's counsel told the court on Friday. "If the court were to make any ruling against the CPM leader, it will affect his prospects in the upcoming elections," the lawyer added. However, VS' advocate did not say when the affidavit will be submitted. Chandy had approached the Thiruvananthapuram additional district court stating that Achuthanandan was raising false allegations against him, thereby maligning his image. The court will pronounce its verdict later on Friday
