Probe ordered into appointment of Achuthanandan's son.
Kerala Speaker G. Karthikeyan on Wednesday ordered an assembly committee to probe whether Leader of Opposition V.S. Achuthanandan's son was appointed director of an IT educational institute during the Marxist leader's tenure as the chief minister.
Achuthanandan on Wednesday morning denied that his son V.A. Arunkumar was appointed the director of the ICT Academy during his tenure as the state chief minister, as alleged by Congress legislator P.C. Vishnunath.
"If Vishnunath still stands by his statement, then this can be inquired into by an assembly committee or he should withdraw his allegation and apologise," Achuthanandan said on the floor of the assembly.
With Vishnunath sticking to his contention, the speaker ruled that an assembly committee will probe the issue.
