THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Former chief minister Oommen Chandy has said that he was harassed for the past five years in the name of Saritha S Nair’s letter in connection with the Solar case.

Addressing a press meet, he also said that with the removal of the letter from the Solar report by the Kerala High Court, the LDF government who took hasty actions based on the report has been put to shame.

“Saritha’s letter was the only evidence that the government found against me. Now, with the HC rejecting Saritha’s letter, the credibility of the Solar report itself has become questionable. I’ve no objection to any further action by the government against the HC order. I’ll face everything legally,” he said, adding that he has never once used the Solar Commission for political mileage.

Commenting on the upcoming Chengannur bypolls, Oommen Chandy said that it will prove be an evaluation of the government by the people, and expressed his confidence over the victory of the UDF candidate.

When asked about the recently concluded Karnataka Assembly elections, he said that the move by the BJP to gain power in Karanataka has brought shame to the country. “The BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will pay a huge price for coming to power in Karnataka by unscrupulous means,” he said.

The Kerala HC ordered to remove Saritha Nair’s letter and related remarks form the Solar Commission report two days ago. Meanwhile, the court has not accepted the petition seeking the cancellation of the Solar report.
