Kerala Government’s Chief Whip PC George has asked the United Democratic Front permission to form a new political party. While speaking to Asianet News, George warned the UDF lead state government that he will not resign as chief whip, if he is not allowed to form a new party. He said that UDF has every right to expel him. He has also challenged Finance Minister K.M Mani to talk to him directly. George asserted that Mani doesn’t have any right to seek his resignation as he has won the UDF’s votes and has been a part of the front for last 5 years. Last week Mani had told media that he did request the CM to remove George from the chief whip's post, but that Chandy was not ready to commit himself and told the Finance Minister that a decision could only be taken after consulting other UDF leaders. George and Mani who belong to the same party, Kerala Congress M, have been at loggerheads over the bar bribe scam.
