might have accidentally touched her side but that he had not deliberately
outraged her modesty. This resulted in a major political scandal in the State
putting the LDF Government in trouble. With pressure mounting and the media
increasing its attack on him, Joseph, who was the PWD Minister in the
Achuthanandan Cabinet, had to tender his resignation.

neglecting others in the state.
