V.S. Sunil Kumar, MLA, has given a breach of privilege notice against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to Speaker G. Karthikeyan saying that Mr. Chandy had misled the House on Tuesday while replying to an adjournment motion on a pollution abatement project at Travancore Titanium Products.

According to Mr. Sunil Kumar, the Chief Minister said that a case seeking an inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the pollution abatement project was pending in court and hence the Opposition LDF should not have raised the issue in the Assembly. The statement was not factual. No case was pending in court. The MLA urged the Speaker to initiate action for breach of privilege against the Chief Minister.
