New Delhi: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will on January 25 appear before the commission which is probing the Rs 7 crore solar panel scam.
A sitting of the Commission will be conducted in Thiruvananthapuram on January 25 during which Chandy will be examined on his office`s alleged role in connection with the scam.
The Commission, headed by retired High Court Judge G Sivarajan, has examined several people, including politicians from the Opposition, on whether the government suffered any financial loss due to the alleged deals.
The case relates to the duping of several persons by the two prime accused -- Saritha S Nair and Biju Radhakrishnan -- who had promised to install solar power panels for them.
Following the furore over the scam, the opposition had demanded the resignation of Chandy, as the names of two of his personal staff had come up during the probe.
