A mobile phone for Kerala CM, finally
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Oomen Chandy will soon be flaunting what all others have had all this while - the ubiquitous mobile phone.
All these years Chandy could only be reached through the mobile phones of his personal assistant or his security staff since he did not have his own mobile phone.
Chandy on Tuesday told reporters here that he would make certain changes in his style of working.
"Yes, I am considering a few changes and one is that, I might have my own mobile soon. On the other changes, once I make a decision, I will let you all know," said Chandy.
The sudden decision to own a cell phone cane after his personal assistant Teny Jopan and his gunman Salim Raj lost their jobs following a media expose.
The media published the call details of Saritha S Nair, a con-woman who is now in custody after cheating numerous people to the tune of crores of rupees.
The published call details shows that the two of his staff members, who have been booted out, have been regularly in close contact with Saritha.
Nair and her former live-in partner Radhakrishnan had formed a company "Team Solar", which was engaged in erecting solar panels at offices and homes. They managed to collect crores of rupees on the promise of providing the equipment to tap green sources of energy.
Following numerous complaints of cheating, Nair was arrested on June 3 and Radhakrishnan was arrested from Coimbatore on Monday.
"All of you know that my office is open to all and anyone can just walk in and meet me. For some time my colleagues, my party top leaders and others have been requesting me that I should bring some restriction on meeting people," said Chandy.
"But, I feel I should be with the people and apart from owning my own mobile, a few changes are going to be made...," said Chandy.
Chandy`s staff said that if he finally owns a mobile phone, it will still be difficult to get him on that.
"If he has his own mobile, then the next complaint would be that it is always engaged," said one of his staff members.
