The court and a sinking minister

The court and a sinking minister

There was a violation of the collective cabinet responsibility by the minister, the court held.

Chandy claimed that the Supreme Court has held that there is no connection between the observations being made in an open court and a signed verdict.

"We are embarrassed to say that a minister can not file a writ petition against his own government", the court orally observed, reported The Hindu. However, on reaching Capital he changed his stand.

A division bench of the court severely criticized the minister for such a move, saying that he can not approach the court as a minister and a common man at the same time. From asking him to step down from his ivory tower to asking if he had lost trust in the CM and the government in which he is also a minister, the list was long and embarrassing.

Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala told reporters in Palakkad on Tuesday that it's surprising that while Vijayan was quick to get the resignation of his close aide E.P. Jayarajan and A.K. Saseendran, in Chandy's case that did not happen. The CPI, the second largest party in the ruling coalition, persisted with a different tone - "When ministers lead parties, instead of parties leading their ministers, we have such unfortunate situations", state secretary Kanam Rajendran said.

Venezuela defaults on sovereign debt, says S&P
On Sunday, Mr Maduro said in a televised address: "Venezuela will never default, it will never happen". Global credit ratings agency Standard & Poor's has declared Venezuela to be in "selective default".

The collector should give a hearing to the minister within 15 days, "Justice Raveendran had said".

NCP state president T P Peethambaran Master, however, did not disclose to the media the decisions arrived at the executive.

The LDF entrusted chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Sunday to take a decision.

The Congress party in Kerala was put in an embarrassing spot after the party's senior Rajya Sabha member Vivek Tankha, a former Additional Solicitor General of India, appeared as counsel for Chandy. Chandy was asked why he was shying away from the district collector's report and to prove his innocence if he was not the owner of the disputed land.

A group of Youth Congress activists waved black flags at Tankha and shouted slogans just before he left for the Kerala High Court. The leaders of the party maintained high probity in public life.
