NCP rejects demand for resignation of nominee in LDF govt

Saturday also saw majority of speakers at a meeting of the State committee of the CPI (M) demanding action against Chandy by pointing out the party, the LDF or its Government could not afford to create an impression of protecting Chandy though a section in the party and its Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan have been defending the NCP leader all the way.

The Congress-led UDF and BJP demanded Chandy's resignation after Alappuzha district collector T V Anupama confirmed that a paddy field had been reclaimed for laying the road to his resort.

According to the Newspaper, What the District Collector's report dealt with was the way the Land Conservancy Act was violated and how the land assigned to the landless for construction of houses were purchased for development of his resort.

NCP state president T P Peethamparan, meanwhile, said the meeting was scheduled much earlier to discuss organizational issues.

Chandy, the richest Minister in the LDF Government, has run out of options also because of the stiff demand raised by the CPI, second biggest partner in the ruling front, for his resignation or expulsion.

Rockefeller Center's 75-foot Christmas tree arrives in New York City
After it's taken down, it will be cut into lumber which will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. The 75-foot, 13-ton Spruce tree was chopped down in State College, Pennsylvania in the morning.

It was called in the wake of the government receiving the legal opinion of the State Advocate General (AG) on a report of the Alappuzha district collector on the alleged encroachment.

Though a section of leaders, including A K Saseendran MLA, are upset over the ways of Chandy and leaders close to him, they are not likely to raise any serious objections in Tuesday's meeting.

The CPI leaders felt that the Minister, who moved High Court against Alappuzha Collector's report against him on encroachment, is undesirable giving a message that the Minister is moving against a Government report. However, he did not divulge the details of the meeting. The NCP national leadership is learnt to have told the state leadership to prolong Chandy's resignation as no senior leaders were available for consultation on Monday. "He should show the guts to oust him like he evicted the mediapersons from the venue of the peace talks with the BJP some time ago", he said. "Only the high court can prove this".

The petition is expected to come up before the court for hearing on Wednesday.
