14 November 2017

Breaking his silence on the matter, he told reporters here that the decision would be taken after examining the Kerala High Court order and NCP decision. The minister can approach the district collector itself and present his contentions, the court said while dismissing the petition.

Congress leaders including former PCC Chief V M Sudheeran and Leader of the Opposition in Kerala Assembly Ramesh Chennithala have expressed their displeasure over the Madhya Pradesh MP's decision to defend Chandy, an NCP nominee in the CPI (M)-led LDF government.

Ticking the minister off, the HC on Tuesday asked how he, as a minister, could petition the court against the government.

Communist Party of India State secretary Kanam Rajendran on Tuesday said the High Court's adverse observations about the collective responsibility of the Cabinet were grave and hoped that the Chief Minister would take an appropriate decision as per the Left Democratic Front's position on Transport Minister Thomas Chandy's resignation. "We will implement LDF's decision", Vijayan told the media. The remarks made by court has no connection with the verdict. The NCP had also been asked to take a stand on it, he said.

It is based on the principle of collective responsibility that the entire cabinet resigns even if a no-confidence motion is passed against a single minister, the court pointed out.

The opposition Congress-led UDF and the BJP have been demanding the resignation of Chandy over allegations of land encroachment.

Chennithala said they had come to know of Tankha's decision to appear for Chandy only yesterday and immediately AICC General secretary in charge of Kerala, Mukul Wasnik, was informed. A minister approaching the high court against his own government is unheard of and it means that the minister has lost his trust in the government and the chief minister, the bench commented.

Beleaguered Kerala minister Thomas Chandy today said he would quit if the observation against him is in the signed verdict of the high court on his petition against the Alappuzha district collectors report on alleged encroachments.
