Nair, one of the founders of the company at the centre of the controversy, at least four times, according to the report. He allegedly demanded a bribe of Rs2. It also lists 35 phone calls made by state ministers to Saritha before she made the allegations of a sexual nature public in The allegations of sex scandal are important but no real investigation was made to ascertain their merits, partly because of the varying stands taken by Saritha from time to time, the report said.
All Congress leaders—now in opposition—have denied the allegations. Last month, the government had decided to book all individuals named in the report under corruption charges.
Presenting the four-volume, 1,page report compiled after interviewing witnesses and studying documents, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that as per the report Chandy is guilty of corruption and former home minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, along with senior police officers, tried to protect him from being indicted in the case in the initial stages.
A woman can always be more diplomatic than a man. That is also why even my ex-partner Biju Radhakrishnan insisted on having only female staff in our office in client-facing roles.Saritha Mukesh
We hear that a government representative had come to meet you in the Attakulangara Central Jail where you were lodged. Though he came on the pretext of wanting to meet some agitationists lodged there, he had sought permission to meet me.
I declined as I knew his intentions were not good. That means you knew George quite well.

George is the one responsible for my plight. He wanted to use me for his political moves. When I refused, he threatened to send me to jail.

I have evidence to prove this. What could George's intentions possibly be in using you, as you claim he did? The time is not ripe to reveal his actual intent. But he was misinterpreting my relationship with then forest minister K. Ganesh Kumar to settle political scores with him. Top CPI M leaders. I and my lawyer were offered many things, but we didn't oblige.
What was the LDF offer? They told me that if I made accusations against Oommen Chandy, they would help me get out of the solar scam mess.
They offered me Rs 10 crore and a house. There were offers to my lawyer too.
How much money did you make from blackmailing the high and mighty? I have not made a paisa from any of them.

But even my relatives think that I have made a fortune and ask why I am not sharing the booty with them laughs. There are allegations that you approached then Union minister of state for power K. Venugopal to get your firm included in the empanelled list of companies for solar projects by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. I did approach K. Venugopal with some projects and maintained a good rapport with him even after his portfolio was changed.
But you gave a clean chit to Venugopal twice. Recently, you said you did not have any illicit relationship with him. Then you went on to file a complaint with the Alappuzha police against people who linked you and him in posters. Venugopal didn't approach me for a character certificate! My former partner Biju had often beaten me up for maintaining a rapport with KC, though KC didn't know that. What about your relationship with Ganesh Kumar.
There were rumours that he was planning to marry you. We were just good friends. I once invited Ganesh Kumar to inaugurate a project and thereafter we maintained good rapport. Then why did Ganesh Kumar's father and former minister R. Balakrishna Pillai help you? You went on record saying that a UDF leader mentally supported you during your difficult time.
'CPI(M) offered to help me on solar scam if I implicated Chandy'
Balakrishna Pillai never helped me. But I must admit that he offered me moral support during that crucial time. If Ganesh's name was not in your statement of those who used you, why should Pillai help you? I had knocked at several people's doors for help.
Only Balakrishna Pillai opened his door for me. He advised me at a time when I was even thinking of ending my life. But I never ever met him in person.
It was my advocate Feny Balakrishnan who met him. A photograph of you with the Chief Minister is being circulated in the media to suggest that you were very close to Oommen Chandy.

You are murmuring something into his ear in that photograph. I actually went to a function to hand him a complaint about my ex-partner Biju. I went up to the dais to give it to him. As there was a huge din there, I had to speak into his ear. When the scam broke out, the Chief Minister said he knows you only by the name Lakshmi Nair. I was known among people as Lakshmi Nair, my nickname.
But he knew that I am Saritha Nair. He might have been forced to claim otherwise because of the pressure on him. I was just their friend. Joppan was made a scapegoat. If you don't collect money from people through blackmailing, how could you raise the Rs 12 lakh as surety to secure bail?
My relatives abroad helped me.
