Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president VM Sudheeran on Saturday came down heavily on the party leaders who had participated in the engagement ceremony of Megha, the daughter of Biju Ramesh -MD and Chairman of the Rajadhani Business Group in Kerala- and Ajay Krishnan, the son of former revenue minister and present Konni MLA Adoor Prakash in a grand function held in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday.
What made this future matrimonial alliance all the more intriguing to one and all was the presence of quite a few Congress leaders at the function, a fact which was splashed all over the online world by Biju Ramesh in his acknowledgement note posted on Facebook.
Yes, Biju Ramesh is the very same guy who went out of his way to cook the UDF goose by donning the role of the whistle-blower in the Kerala bar scam which had rocked the previous UDF regime and which contributed a great deal to its thrashing at the recently held Assembly polls in the state.
Adoor Prakash too had his name bandied about -albeit in a different scam- as one of the beneficiaries of the bribes that were doled out in the Solar scam which too played a major role in the drastic reduction of the UDF governmentâ€™s credibility among the masses.
Among the host of prominent ministers and politicians from all major political parties who were invited to the function, former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, current Leader of the Opposition Ramesh Chennithala, former UDF ministers Aryadan Muhammed and AP Anil Kumar also apparently participated in the function.
Sudheeran told the media that it was not right on the part of the leaders to have turned up for the said event. Chennithala and Chandy had reportedly attended the event in secret, once they had ensured that the gathered news media had left the venue.
Thatâ€™s when Biju Ramesh â€“the prospective father-in-law- took it upon himself to reveal the same for public consumption. He sure canâ€™t seem to survive without his daily quota of publicity, must say!
As per reports, the wedding had been decided on, much before the bar scam broke. In the melee that followed post the scam, both the engagement and wedding were -not surprisingly- postponed.
The marriage has now finally been fixed for December 4. Hope at least the young couple are spared the shocks of future scams in the marital life that lies ahead.
