PJ Joseph received commission to build new dam in Mullaperiyar alleges PC George


Kozhikode: PC George MLA on Sunday alleged that former minister PJ Joseph enacted the drama to build a new dam in Mullaperiyar so that he could get commission from a swiss company.

Speaking after inaugurating the Swathanthra Bus Thozhilali Union’s convention and launch of agitation, PC George said that all the three politicians in the Oommen Chandy-KM Mani- Kunhalikutty coalition are good ‘businessmen.’

“Former irrigation minister PJ Joseph had prepared an estimate of Rs 1000 crore with a swiss company to construct a new dam in Mullaperiyar. Joseph went to Switzerland with Kerala Congress (M) former district president (Palakkad) AV Mani and received the commission after making the deal. After giving back the commission he received, Joseph is keeping mum now,” PC George alleged.
