THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Finally, Thomas Chandy, who was facing allegations of lake encroachment, has tendered his resignation. His resignation was handed over to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan by NCP state chief T P Peethambaran.

Chandy had no other option but to resign following harsh criticisms from the Kerala High Court on his plea filed in connection with the lake encroachment. Following that, the CPM who had protected Chandy earlier deserted him later. The NCP state leadership convened yesterday also wanted him to resign. Chandy along with Peethambaran had called on the chief minister this morning at the Cliff House.  

This is the third minister resigning from the Pinarayi cabinet. The first was E P Jayarajan followed by A K Saseendran. With the resignation of Chandy, NCP, an allied partner of the LDF, has lost its importance in the cabinet.
