Thiruvananthapuram, July 3 (BPNS)

Kerala Janapaksham leader and former MLA, P.C. George said that the Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s foreign sojourns must be investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). He said that the controversial Kerala businessman, Pharis Aboobacker was behind this and Pinarayi Vijayan was part of a financial racket.

George was speaking to media persons at his residence in Erattupetta in Kottayam on Sunday. He also said that the Chief Minister was regularly traveling to the United States and after two days of his reaching there, his daughter Veena Vijayan was following her father. He said that Veena had also traveled to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and also Australia after the Chief Minister visited these countries and said that a major financial racket is behind this and that this was controlled by Pharis Aboobacker who is now based out of the United States.

The former legislator also said that he was being regularly targeted by the Kerala police and that the Chief Minister was behind this. He said that he was contemplating filing a defamation suit against the Chief Minister and is consulting his lawyers regarding the same.

It may be noted that a woman who was alleged to be involved in a criminal case and had earlier accused the former Chief Minister Oommen Chandi in a sexual assault case, complained to police that George had sexually assaulted her.

Police who were questioning  George in a case at the Thycaud government guest house in a case related to the gold smuggling case accused was suddenly arrested by the police following the sexual assault case. However, the Thiruvananthapuram judicial first class magistrate court granted George bail on Saturday night itself. He lashed out against the Chief Minister on Saturday night also and on Sunday morning he is continuing with his allegations.

George also called upon the Enforcement Directorate to conduct a detailed investigation into the financial transactions of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s wife Kamala and his daughter Veena Vijayan.

With George coming out strongly against the Chief Minister, the gold smuggling case has taken another turn and Pinarayi Vijayan will have to provide several answers to questions raised by George.
