Kochi: Coming out in support of Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, Congress leader A K Antony Tuesday ruled out any change in the state government on the solar panel scam issue.

Antony said the opposition CPI(M) led Left Democratic Front has been making allegations against the Chief Minster, which has crossed the "lakshman rekha".

"There is no political crisis in the state. None need to think that there will be a change of government`, the Defence Minister, who was in Kerala to attend the funeral of his sister at Alapuzha, told reporters here.
"When the solar allegations cropped up, the government had ordered investigation. Let the investigation be over. There are laws and courts. The investigation process is going on. Now the opposition is unleashing violence and trying to force the Chief Minister to resign. That will not happen. There is no political crisis", he said.

The funeral of Sister Infant Teresa (80), eldest sister of Antony, was conducted yesterday.
