Thiruvananthapuram: The vigilance is yet to take a decision on a petition filed by opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala against transport minister Thomas Chandy. According to sources, additional director of prosecution (Vigilance) K.D. Babu sought more time to give a legal opinion on the action to be taken on the opposition leader's petition. Though Vigilance director Loknath Behera had earlier asked Mr Babu to give his opinion by Friday, it was learnt that Mr. Babu informed him that there were some complications in the matter and hence he required more time to give a definite legal opinion.
Meanwhile, there were allegations that the Vigilance was employing delaying tactics awaiting a political nod on the matter. In a petition given to the Vigilance director on Tuesday, Mr. Chennithala sought a comprehensive probe into various allegations, including encroachments of land and water bodies at Lake Palace resort in Alappuzha owned by Mr. Chandy as well as allegations regarding the illegal tarring of road till the resort.
