The state unit's decision would be conveyed to the national leadership and after getting approval, request to make Chandy the minister would be made to LDF and Chief Minister, NCP state president Uzahavoor Vijayan said.

Mangalam TV, a new Malayalam channel, launched on Sunday with a "sensational" story.

Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan reacted saying that it was a serious issue.

Secret Service supervisors dismissed the gunfire as a gang-related shootout and the bullet holes were not discovered for six days. The Secret Service said Friday that last week's intruder was on the grounds for approximately 16 minutes before he was arrested.

Earlier this year, EP Jayarajan, Industries Minister and widely considered Pinarayi Vijayan's closest confidante from Kannur district, had resigned on charges of nepotism.

"My stand is I have not done anything wrong". However I am resigning to uphold morality in politics which our party and political front have always tried to uphold. The CPM's displeasure in awarding the cabinet berth to another NCP MLA, Thomas Chandy, and reports that the cabinet berth may altogether be denied to the party will also be discussed in the meeting, NCP leaders said.

Saseendran maintains that he has never behaved improperly with anyone.

The resignation comes at a time when the ruling party and the opposition Congress-led UDF are busy campaigning for the April 12 Malappuram bypoll, necessitated following the death of IUML leader E Ahamed. "After examining all facts, a decision will be taken", he said. The Minister resigned on moral grounds and the Chief Minister announced a judicial enquiry. "The truth needs to come out". "Once I become a minister, I will carry out my responsibilities to the best of my abilities", he said. "The report has shocked everyone", Chennithala told reporters in Thiruvananthapuram.
