Minister M M Mani has trolled former minister V K Ebrahim Kunju, who is an accused in Palarivattom flyover scam.“If there are no iron bars, he will soon be behind the bars,” Mani wrote on his Facebook page.
The iron bars referred here is sufficient quantity of iron rods that should have been used for the construction of the flyover. Earlier, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan also had come out against Ebrahim Kunju.
The statement of TO Sooraj, who was the Public Works Secretary at the time of construction of Palarivattom flyover, has become crucial evidence against the then public works minister Ebrahim Kunju.Sooraj had submitted in the high court that it was Ebrahim Kunju who had ordered to give crores of rupees as interest free loan to the contractor and relax conditions in the contract for construction of the flyover.
The Vigilance team is convinced that the files signed by T O Sooraj were seen by Ebrahim. They have also reportedly collected more evidence against the minister. A decision on his arrest will be taken within two days.
