THIRUVANANTHAPURAM Aug 21: Forest Minister K Raju, who slipped away to Germany even when most part of Kerala remain marooned, has returned home on Monday. There are chances for disciplinary action against the minister.

The CPI itself has come out with the criticism that the minister could not work with discerning ability. The State Executive meeting of the party that will be held on September 4 will seek the minister’s clarification.

The Minister reached Delhi in the morning and reached Thiruvananthapuram by 6 pm.

“I went to Germany only after taking the chief minister’s permission. I didn’t do any wrong. On the day of my departure, the situation was not dangerous,” he told media persons before slipping into his official car from the airport.

When asked whether party will ask for his explanation, he replied that it was all party’s internal matter that cannot be announced publically,” he said.
