The opposition Congress on Wednesday pressed for the resignation of the Kerala Education Minister after the Supreme Court dismissed a state government plea seeking withdrawal of a criminal case against Left Democratic Front (LDF) MLAs, including V Sivankutty, in connection with the ruckus inside the state Assembly in 2015.

New Delhi, 28 July 2021

As per news report of NDTV, Senior Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala, who waged the legal battle seeking trial of MLAs involved in the ruckus, urged Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to seek Mr Sivankutty's resignation immediately in view of the Supreme Court verdict. Other UDF leaders including Congress' K Sudhakaran, VD Satheesan and Muslim League leader P K Kunhalikutty and BJP state president K Surendran also said Mr Sivankutty should step down immediately. They said Mr Sivankutty does not have moral right to continue as the minister. However, Mr Sivankutty indicated that he would not resign as the top court has not made any observation warranting his resignation.
