A few members allege that corruption totaling to  Rs. 88 lakh is involved in allowing tax exemption for Tejaswini building on Technopark campus.

Others allege that there have been irregularities related to appointments in central government institutions, transfers and execution of central government projects and that revelations will come in coming days.

Closer to details, a leader said a well-known person close to party leadership offered huge sum requesting Governor’s post in a north-eastern State. In another instance, a leader revealed, a controversial business man offered bribe to the party for a top post in central government.

However sources say, after reports on these underhand deals were notified to party leadership, the moneys were returned with interest.

Following medical college scandal, Thiruvananthapuram district committee met yesterday and decided to appoint an enquiry commission into the allegations.

The state party leadership is meanwhile probing into the claim that a mid-level leader accepted Rs. 5 lakhs from an official serving posted at north-eastern State for transfer to top post in Thiruvananthapuram airport.
