Bar baron Biju Ramesh on Monday raised bribery allegations against two Congress ministers in Kerala, where already the scandal has landed two other cabinet members in corruption cases.
Ramesh, working president of Kerala Bar Hotel Owners Association, told the media that he had paid Rs 2 crore to Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala and Rs 25 lakh to Health Minister V S Sivakumar.
He said Chennithala was paid the bribe when he had been the president of the Congress state unit. The amount was handed over to Chennithala at his office without taking any receipt for the payment. But, the bar association had entered Rs 2 crore in the name of Chennithala in its accounts.
