Thiruvananthapuram; August 13, 2013: At last the people’s power won as
the autocratic approach sheds by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy who
concedes the demand for a judicial inquiry in to solar panel scam. As he
bowed to the pressure mounted by LDF’s indefinite siege for last two
day, the struggle has been stopped. While announcing the withdrawal from
the siege, CPI (M) state secretary Pinaryi Vijayan warned that the
struggles demanding the resignation of Oommen Chandy will continue.
Pinarayi while welcoming the announcement of a judicial probe said that
whenever a judicial enquiry has been ordered which also had the Chief
Minister in its ambit of probe, the incumbent has always resigned. He
said that if Oommen Chandy refuses to do so, the LDF would continue
boycotting him and he would be greeted with black flags wherever he
goes. The Chief Minister announced his willingness to conduct a
judicial probe after a meeting of UDF leaders. After the meeting UDF
leaders said that they are ready to announce a judicial probe only if
the struggle withdraws. But suddenly Chief Minister came in to the
scene, and announced the probe. He said that a sitting judge
of High court will conduct the probe. Official decision will be taken in
next cabinet meeting. Chief Minister also assured that the terms of
reference will be decided with the consent of opposition. Chief
Minister, who was previously reluctant to judicial probe, repeatedly
ruled any scope for a judicial inquiry. It may be recalled that
on day one of the indefinite picketing around a lakh people had poured
into Thiruvananthapuram openly challenging the threats and intimidation
held out by the UDF government which had mobilized the state and central
paramilitary forces on an unprecedented scale to repress and suppress
an agitation which was gathering more steam with each passing day.
That a determined people cannot be stopped by any means was evident
from the evening of August 11 itself with hundreds arriving by each
train that reached Thiruvananthapuram station. Thousands more joined on
August 12. August 13 saw new batches arriving from all over the state.
Ultimately, the government had to yield.
