CPM veteran and former Kerala CM VS Achuthanandan called the tainted minister'VIP Chandy
The minister can approach the district collector and present his contentions, it said.
The division bench of the court of Justice P.N. Ravindran and Justice Devan Ramachandran came down heavily on Chandy and observed that it was very odd what a state Minister has filed a petition against the state government "which questions the failure of the collective responsibility of the cabinet".
The high court had cancelled Chandy's petition, stating that a minister won't be able to approach the court against the government for personal needs.
In two sessions, on either side of the lunch break, the judges made a number of damning observations about the minister.
The NCP had also been asked to take a stand on it, he said. There was once a Kayal (lake) Raja, Murikkummoottil Thommen Joseph, who created history worth emulating in the 1930s by converting about 2,000 acres of a lake into the cultivable paddy fields of Kuttanad.
During arguments on Tuesday, counsel for Chandy, a businessman -turned-politician representing the NCP in the cabinet, pressed for expunging any reference to the minister in the report.
NCP state president T P Peethambaran Master, however, did not disclose to the media the decisions arrived at the executive.
A division bench of the court severely criticized the minister for such a move, saying that he can not approach the court as a minister and a common man at the same time. It is better for Chandy to quit, said senior communist leader and public works minister G. Sudhakaran.
Mr Vijayan said the LDF had earlier chose to entrust him to take an appropriate decision on the matter after looking into all aspects.
