Kerala High Court Judge Justice B. Kemal Pasha on Wednesday said that contrary to a report in a TV channel, he had never given any letter to any body or “Team Solar” for promoting its products.

A TV channel news report on Wednesday alleged that Saritha and Radhakrishnan had used a letter from the judge for promoting their business.

Reacting to the report, theJjudge said that when he was functioning as a district judge and Chairman of the Ernakulam District Legal Services Authority, some non-governmental organisations including an institution named Team Solar visited his office and gave a pamphlet showing a programme called ‘Smile Kochi’ that they were planning to implement in cooperation with the Kochi Corporation on the streets of the city.

They had said that under the programme, they would install solar street lights free of cost on the streets of Kochi. They wanted a message from him in his capacity as Chairman of the Legal Services Authority. As the authority was conducting various programmes on environmental protection, on pollution and global warming, he had given a message congratulating the activists for taking up such a programme. Apart from giving such a message, “I have never given any letter to either ‘Team Solar’ or any other persons for promoting their products”, the Judge said.
