Kannur: Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee
on Tuesday demanded a CBI probe into the lottery scam in the state.
Speaking at a meet-the-press programme organised by Kannur
Press Club, KPCC President Ramesh Chennithala said only such a
probe would bring to light all the facts on the lottery issue.
Chennithala alleged that the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic
Front (LDF) government was scared of ordering an investigation
as it would reveal all the facts.
He said Manjalamkuzi Ali, LDF MLA from Mankad in Malappuram
district, who had decided to part ways with the front and quit
the membership in the state legislative assembly, was welcome
to join the United Democratic Front (UDF).
