Government Chief Whip P.C. George has said that Chief Minister Oommen Chandy should have been questioned earlier in the solar scam cases.

Mr. George was referring to the disclosure made by Advocate General K.P. Dandapani before the Kerala High Court that the Special Investigation Team probing the solar cases had questioned the Chief Minister.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Wednesday, Mr. George disclosed that it was a joint effort that he had made with Kerala Congress(B) chairman K. Balakrishna Pillai that had led to the resignation of K.B. Ganesh Kumar as Forest Minister.

Mr. George said his opinion regarding Mr. Ganesh Kumar’s re-induction into the State Cabinet would be conveyed at the proposed meeting of the ruling United Democratic Front on Thursday.
