Kerala transport minister quits over sleaze talk

29 March 2017

In a major embarrassment to the 10-month-old CPI (M)-led LDF government, Transport minister A K Saseendran today resigned over an allegation of sexual misconduct after the leakage of his purported phone talks with a woman.

A five-time legislator from the Nationalist Congress Party, the minister announced the resignation at Kozhikode. "I am denying the allegation and welcome any probe".

Is Saseendran's departure the end of woes for LDF govt?

Saseendran, a member of NCP, which is a part of the ruling LDF, said he had already informed Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, who he said had not sought his resignation.

Meanwhile, NCP state president Uzhavoor Vijayan said a party meeting would be held tomorrow in view of the developments. It will be given back to Saseendran once he returns after proving his innocence. "Once I become a minister, I will carry out my responsibilities to the best of my abilities", he said. CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan had also the other day mentioned that the ministerial berth is for the NCP.

The Left Democratic Front government on Monday made a decision to order a judicial probe into the sleaze allegations against A.K. Saseendran, who resigned as transport minister.

It was a Malayalam news channel that was launched on Sunday, March 26, 2017, that really blew the lid over the issue, airing a tape where only one side of a conversation is heard. The clip doesn't have the woman's voice and the channel has not clarified whether or not the exchange was consensual. So far, none has come forward with a complaint against Saseendran.
