If the leader is doing good work and if he and high command wants, he can contest very well,” Chandy said.Talking about allegations of corruption including his name cropping up in solar scam case, Chandy rejected the charges saying if even one per cent of these are correct, then he has “no right to hold this post and to continue in public life”.He said that the “whole story” and truth of this case will come out soon.The Chief Minister said similar allegations of financial irregularities were made by the opposition during the conduct of the National Games last year and it was stated that his government and leaders will go to jail “like (ex-CWG Chairman Suresh) Kalmadi” but the fact was that the sporting extravaganza was conducted at a “lower price”.He said while Kerala has “achieved a lot” in education and health sectors, it has shown “very poor performance” in the infrastructure sector, because of which there was “very low” investment in the state.”So, everybody is going out, especially youngsters, after getting degree, they want a visa and go out. Now, mindset of people is changing…”We must have our own development and our own investment, employment generation is necessary,” he said. PTI NES PRM SC PRMlast_img
