Thiruvananthapuram: On bail in a sexual harassment case, former Poonjar MLA PC George on Monday droned on about the nefarious connections between Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and businessman Faris Aboobacker.

He also accused the CM's daughter Veena Vijayan of needlessly intervening in all major IT deals happening in the state, which he termed as mere covers for bigger scams playing out in the state.

Dismissing the sexual harassment case against him as a 'diversionary tactic' employed by his enemies, George urged the Centre and the Enforcement Directorate to launch a probe against Vijayan.

Maintaining he was falsely implicated in the sexual harassment case by Pinarayi due to the fear that he would reveal to the outside world the latter's links with Faris, George said he would submit all the evidence if the Enforcement Directorate (ED) inquired into his charges against the Chief Minister.

"The CPM did not reply to my charges. Pinarayi should resign and face legal proceedings. It is not morally correct for the CM to continue in office," he said.

He further said a complaint would be filed against LDF convener E P Jayarajan for trying to instigate riots in the State soon after the attack on AKG Centre in Thiruvananthapuram. “His call for a riot has led to attacks on Congress offices all over the State. Hence, a case should be taken,” George added.

George said he wanted to see what action the police, which charged him with trying to incite a riot, would take in this complaint.

“It would have been better had Pinarayi's daughter Veena Vijayan shifted her company to Kerala from Bangalore,” he said. It is learnt that Oracle company, where Veena was an employee, took legal action against her.

“Faris Aboobacker is Pinarayi's mentor and has followed him like a shadow for the last six years. Faris visited Pinarayi's house on the eve of all the three marriages of the latter's children. As per the advice of Faris, the Kozhikode Lok Sabha was taken away from Janata Dal (Veerendra Kumar faction) by the CPM in 2009 during LDF seat-sharing. P A Mohammed Riyas fought elections in the Kozhikode seat as CPM candidate. Earlier itself, there were allegations that it was a payment seat,” George said.

It is true that when Pinarayi was the Electricity Minister, work on all pending hydel projects were completed. I congratulated Pinarayi for this even in the floor of the Assembly. But he had indulged in corruption even in such projects, George added.

Crime Branch doctored complainant's audio clip

George accused the Crime Branch of doctoring the audio clip submitted by the complainant in the sexual harassment case.

"The sound in the clip is not mine. It sounds like an English movie. I will prove all these things in the court. Soon, I will come up with a detailed media briefing on the issue," he said.

He also raised allegations against former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in the sexual harassment case based on the information given by the complainant.

“The complainant asked me to change my statement that I had met Chandy and herself at the Cliff House and not at the Secretariat. But I refused to do this. I told this to the CBI when they asked me about the matter,” George added.
