Kerala's Excise Minister K Babu may have resigned from his post, but he seems adamant to take down his adversaries with him.

While announcing his resignation, K Babu had alleged that CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and MLA Sivankutty had conspired against him.

Babu now says CPI(M) polit bureau member Pinarayi Vijayan should discontinue his 'Nava Kerala March'. "If I could resign on moral grounds, then Pinarayi should stop the yatra on the sand grounds," Babu said.

Pinarayi Vijayan is being investigated for his role in the Lavalin scam.

Rubbishing Baby's demand, Pinarayi said there was no reason for him to discontinue the yatra. He in turn has asked for resignations of the Chief Minister and Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala.

"Babu is the Chief Minister's own man. If Babu made money, then he made it for someone else too. The CM should resign," Pinarayi said.
