An allegation, without findings, and Caesar’s wife had cost former Minister K M Mani his seat. Agitations and dharnas were held, demanding his resignation, when he was accused of corruption. He resigned and Caesar’s wife breathed a sigh of relief. Now, it is the turn of the LDF to distance itself from a similar situation.
The Director General of Prosecutions, who is to head the prosecution in the State, has allegations of misappropriation against him. The LDF government came to power after charges of corruption and nepotism against the UDF. However, nobody in the UDF Ministry was convicted of any offence under the Prevention of Corruption Act, except for Balakrishna Pillai, who is in the LDF camp for the time being.
There are now 2 options available to the LDF led government (i) to starve the government to malnutrition, depriving it of the essential political principles for convenience or (ii) divorce Caesar’s wife for she has to come clear of the allegation.
