Collector submits report on ‘encroachment’ by Thomas Chandy

District Collector of Alappuzha, T.V Anupama, has submitted the final report to the government into alleged land encroachment charges against state transport Minister Thomas Chandy.

Chandy has been under attack from the Congress-led UDF Opposition and BJP ever since the allegations surfaced some time back.

Chandy, a businessman turned politician, had rejected the charge that he encroached upon backwaters in Alappuzha district.

Both Opposition UDF and BJP reiterated their demand for his resignation of Chandy.

Congress led UDF Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala demanded that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan sack Chandy if the latter refused to quit of his own.

“As per information that has come out in the media, there have been encroachments have taken place in construction of a parking area for ‘Lake Palace’ resort in Kuttanad owned by Chandy and also violation of rules in filling Marthadam backwaters,” he said.

Taking a dig at the LDF, BJP State President Kummanom Rajasekharan said though the Left ‘waxes eloquent’ on taking action against corruption, they were doing nothing in reality.

The BJP leader also alleged that the government was protecting Chandy even after the land grab charges surfaced.
