Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday refused to comment on the remark made by former KPCC president K Muraleedharan, that even persons who insulted his father and Congress veteran late K Karunakaran had found place in the new UDF ministry.

"I am not saying anything on the remark of Muraleedharan," Chandy told reporters when his attention was drawn to Muraleedharan's remark, apparently peeved at not being considered for ministership in the cabinet.

It was true that everybody could not be accommodated in the ministry. No one was deliberately kept out of the ministry, he said.

Muraleedharan did not attend the swearing-in ceremony of new ministers on May 23 citing reasons that he had not received necessary entry pass to go to Raj Bhavan where the swearing-in ceremony was held.

Muraleedharan was elected from Vattiyurkavu assembly constituency defeating LDF-independent candidate Cheriyan Philip in the April 13 polls by over 16,000 votes.

Suspended from Congress in 2005 for anti-party activities, he was re-admitted into Congress early this year.
