Left Democratic Front representatives in the Special Legislative Committee that inquired into the allegations against Leader of the Opposition V.S. Achuthanandan's son V.A. Arun Kumar have alleged that the committee's report was politically motivated.

Addressing a press conference soon after the presentation of the committee's report in the Assembly on Thursday, the Left Democratic Front representatives—P.K. Gurudasan, S. Sarma, C.K. Nanu and Mullakkara Ratnakaran—said the United Democratic Front wanted to tarnish Mr. Achuthanandan, a leader who had always fought against corruption and nepotism in the government. Committee's chairman V.D. Satheesan and his United Democratic Front colleagues in the committee were not after truth, they alleged.

“They want to use it for their campaign in Piravom bypoll. It will not work,” Mr. Sarma said.
