Resignation is ideal, HC rejects Thomas Chandy's plea

Resignation, Thomas Chandy, High Court

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday rejected the plea filed by Transport Minister Thomas Chandy against Alappuzha district Collector's report in connection with the land grab allegations.

There is reportedly some difference of opinion in the division bench regarding the plea. The court also pointed that the resignation of the minister will be ideal and came down heavily on his decision to file a petition against the Collector's report.

The court asked that how a person sitting in minsterial post file a plea against the government. Earlier in the day, the minister's counsel informed the court that he does not wish to withdraw the petition.

While considering the plea, the court also observed that such matters were handled by Chief Secretaries not ministers.
