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.
