Jayarajan to be reinducted tomorrow

first_imgThiruvananthapuram, Aug 13 (PTI) CPI(M) leader E P Jayarajan, who had resigned from the state cabinet two years ago over nepotism charges, will be sworn in as a minister in the Pinarayi Vijayan-led LDF government tomorrow. The LDF state committee met here today and gave its nod for bringing back Jayarajan. This is the second time that the Kannur strongman ismaking his way into the ministry. The swearing-in will be held at the Raj Bhavan at 10am, LDF convener M Vijayaraghavan said. Jayarajan, who had held the industries and sports portfolio, had resigned in October 2016 over nepotism charges. He ran into trouble after the appointment of his nephew P K Sudheer Nambiar — son of Kannur MP P K Sreemathi — as the managing director of Kerala Industrial Enterprises Ltd. However, the vigilance and anti-corruption bureau, which probed the case, had absolved him of the charges. PTI UD APR HMB HMBlast_img
