SNDP yogam general secretary Vellapally Natesan on Friday handed over documents, which he claims to be the details of the corrupt acts of Devaswam Minister KC Venugopal, to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.

Mr Natesan, who arrived in the evening at the Chief Minister’s office, had a 30-minute closed discussion with Mr Chandy.

After handing over the files, Mr Natesan told reporter that the Chief Minister “was shocked to see some documents” he produced.

Without disclosing the content of the documents, Mr Natesan said that he hoped that the Chief Minister would take an appropriate action. Criticising the Dewaswom Minister’s style of functioning he said, “Mr Venugopal is not a God-fearing man. It is not fair that he handles the Devaswam Department. I have given the Chief Minister the documents regarding the under-the-table deal with Ecosmart, the agency entrusted with Sabarimala development work,” he said.

Mr Natesan had been putting off the meeting with the Chief Minister, when the latter had asked him to produce the documents against Mr Venugopal.
