Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said a right decision will be taken at appropriate time in the case of Transport Minister Thomas Chandy. The minister also said that the state government is responsible for giving a new lease of life to Kuttanad.

The state unit of Chandy's party, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), has asked its central leadership to decide on Chandy's future in the CPM-led Left Democratic Front government.

During arguments on Tuesday, counsel for Chandy, a businessman -turned-politician representing the NCP in the cabinet, pressed for expunging any reference to the minister in the report.

On the minister's contentions against the findings of the collector's report, the court pointed out that he should have taken up his grievances with the district collector itself instead of knocking on the doors of the high court.

The NCP executive meet here today discussed the matter and chose to inform the national leadership about its decision on it.

Tankha, who arrived here Monday evening, however maintained that he was appearing on behalf of Chandy in court in his professional capacity as a lawyer.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said an "appropriate decision" on the minister would be taken after considering the court's order and NCP's stand.
